Good morning APRA-NW!

As you saw earlier, the itinerary has just been dropped for our 2016 APRA-NW conference. This conference location and speaker would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors.

Thank you WealthEngine, Blackbaud, and DonorSearch.

Your support and programs help us in the office and now here in keeping our program costs low year after year.

Conference registration and information can be found here: http://www.apra-nw.org/event-2326461
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.
Kris Hunt
APRA-NW President

Once this is done, I will send the announcement with logos and Kris's note to our membership list through Apricot.
Great work team!
