Apra Pennsylvania represents prospect development professionals in the Pennsylvania region as well as nationwide.

With a membership base exceeding 150 professionals as of June 2022, our organization represents over 70 institutions across 14 states.

Apra PA members play a key role in decision-making processes for investment in products and services at their organizations.

Our members are professionals in prospect development, advancement services, and fundraising. They represent a wide variety of organizations, from one-person shops to large departments.

Apra Pennsylvania has emerged as a leader among Apra chapters.

While Apra PA has been around since the 1990s, in recent years the chapter has grown stronger and more vibrant. Around 2017, we hosted an annual conference and a few events. We now host approximately 35 events per year. Programming includes webinars, in-person or virtual roundtables, virtual book clubs, happy hours, panel discussions, and even trips to baseball games! We also collaborate with Apra chapters to provide programming, most notably our Mid-Atlantic friends at Apra Carolinas, Apra Metro DC, Apra Virginia, and Apra Maryland.

Apra PA is committed to serving the prospect development community.

Apra PA strives to support colleagues experiencing financial hardship. Since March 2020, we have offered free programming, provided two new scholarships to virtual ApraPD2020, and created 2021 and 2022 chapter membership scholarships. We remain at the forefront of trends in the prospect development industry. We host programming related to DEIA initiatives, GDPR, due diligence, analytics, and more. In 2019, we launched a successful mentorship program.

Apra PA will host our 2022 Annual Fall Conference virtually.

Date to be announced during the summer.
