Conference Agenda 

Advance Tomorrow: The Prospect Development Virtual Experience will allow you to connect with more attendees from around the world to connect in new ways during this year's annual conference. The conference will include:

  • Three general sessions to bring us together to level up our collective focus, asking "big picture" questions of industry leaders and ourselves
  • Four days of industry-leading education dedicated to the Body of Knowledge's four domains of prospect development: prospect research, relationship management, data analytics and campaigns
  • The top-notch strategic management track to offer leadership, advocacy and intrapersonal communication skills development
  • Included in registration is on-demand access to 45-50 education sessions. All of the education sessions will be released on Apra University, 3-4 weeks after the event. 
  • You will be able to earn up to 11.25 CFRE certification points by attending the live education and up to 35 CFRE certification points by watching the on-demand sessions, during, or after the event.

Throughout the virtual conference, you will have integrated opportunities to volunteer and network with your colleagues, exhibitors and sponsors.
