Welcome to your
Apra Carolinas chapter website!

Apra Carolinas (covering NC & SC) is a local chapter of Apra International, an international organization for professionals interested in prospect development.

Our goal is to facilitate education about the prospect development field, act as a central source of information about prospect development, encourage professional development and networking among our members, advance cooperative relationships, and support and promote ethical research practices.

 “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" 

- Albert Einstein
