Introducing the SW Advancement Research Organization

Prospect Researchers in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico now have their own APRA Chapter — SWARO

According to its website, SWARO is a regional chapter of APRA, an international organization for people in the field of prospect development. Its mission is to provide educational and networking opportunities to fundraising professionals in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. It is intended to be a forum to share best practices and to advance cooperation among its members.

Dues are very reasonable, and the chapter will be holding a Happy Hour at the APRA conference in July. The group would like people to stop in July 31 during APRA Phoenix from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m at the twenty6 restaurant located on the bottom level of the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort. I’ll be there!

APRA is a wonderful organization, but I think the true beauty is how much a local chapter can do to help people learn about prospect development. I’ve joined, and I hope you will too. You can learn more at their website at https://swaro.wildapricot.org/
