APRA-NW Spring Conference
Maximize Your Resources: Prospect Tracking and Measuring Success for Shops of All Shapes and Sizes

Monday, May 21, 2006

Evergreen State College, The Longhouse Olympia, WA - The Longhouse Educational and Cultural Center
8:30-4:00 (Continental breakfast and lunch included in registration)

Come join us for this year's Spring conference at Evergreen State College in beautiful Olympia. This year's conference will focus on prospect tracking and success metrics, with equal attention given to shops both big and small.

Speakers Susan Hayes-McQueen, Director of Development Research and Relationship Management at the University of Washington and Betsy Cooper, Prospect Research Manager at Reed College, will lead the morning conference panel focusing on setting up and managing prospect systems for both small and large shops.

The afternoon workshop will be lead by our Keynote Speaker, Christina Pulawski of Pulawski Consulting. In this session, we'll discuss how to use data to track and report on the performance of research, and effectively connect it to your organization's mission. We'll also cover how to use this information to advance the status of the information function in your organization, and other strategies and methods for publicizing, marketing, and managing your department's image and services to your institution - from assessing your roles and capabilities to looking at the means and methods you use to communicate with your colleagues.

Conference cost is $55 for members and $70 for non-members. Conference registration forms are available online at http://www.apra-nw.org
