Apra Twitter Chats

Upcoming Twitter Chats:

I Need A Little Help from My Friends

November 20  | 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Central Time

Volunteering can be one of the most rewarding experiences in the nonprofit sector. Volunteering for your local Apra Chapter is a great way to demonstrate your #ResearchPride. So why do some chapters struggle to fill leadership positions, and what can we do to change that? Join Apra Illinois president, Katie Ingrao, and Apra Wisconsin president pro tem, Sarah Bernstein, for a Twitter Chat as we discuss the challenges many chapters face with volunteer recruitment and leadership succession planning.

Subject Matter Experts: 

  • Katie Ingrao, Associate Director of Prospect Management, Rush University Medical Center
  • Sarah Bernstein, Principal, Philanthrodata - Fundraising intelligence and information management
