APRA Carolinas Conference

“Show me the $$$!”  That’s the tagline for “The Prospecting Gamble,” an upcoming conference hosted by our friends at APRA Carolinas (Full disclosure: I’m one of the scheduled speakers!).  The event will be held on June 6 and 7, 2013, at Wingate University in Wingate, North Carolina (just outside Charlotte).  The sponsors are LexisNexis, DonorSearch, Blackbaud, and Wealth Engine.  I’m looking forward to presentations by Helen Brown (The Helen Brown Group), David Lawson (Working Philanthropy), David Julian (Foundation for the Carolinas), and many others.  The hosts are keeping up the gambling theme with a casino night.  (If I were a gambling man (and I am), I’d bet you can find me at the blackjack table.)  I’ll give a rundown on the highlights of the conference when I return.  If you’re in the area or want to make your way there, this looks to be a fun and informative event.  Hope to see you there.
Mitch Roberson, Communications Director, APRA MidSouth


  1. This conference is actually no gamble - it looks absolutely great! I wish I could attend. Go Carolinas.

  2. It *was* a great conference, and Mitch's prezi on prospecting was fun. Except that it made me hungry! All those pictures of popsicles!

  3. Helen, I'm so happy to have met you in North Carolina. Glad you liked my presentation and I hope you enjoyed some popsicles!
