It was great to see so many colleagues at last Friday’s CPRA Summer Symposium and FATE Brewing Company networking event. We hope the photo below capture the spirit of the day.
Please make plans to attend the CPRA Fall Symposium featuring leading prospect research thinker David M. Lawson! It will be held November 1 at CSU’s Denver event center. And if you’re attending next month’s APRA International Conference in Baltimore, please join your research colleagues for dinner on Friday, August 9.
Keep your eye out too for details on the CPRA Mentoring Program that launches August 1!
For those who attended the symposium, here is a preview of the Harvard Business Review article (“The Chief Strategy Officer”) to which David Sterling referred: http://hbr.org/2007/10/the-chief-strategy-officer/ar/1
And here is the Helen Brown Group blog posting that Misa Lobato mentioned regarding how Elizabeth Crabtree, Assistant Vice President for Strategy and Resource Development at Brown University, was able to identify 5,284 new major gift prospects for her university’s campaign, a 500% increase in potential supporters: http://www.helenbrowngroup.com/2011/06/how-to-get-a-500-increase-in-prospects/
