Why Should I Present at Prospect Development 2016?

Don't take our word for it! Hear what past presenters have to say:

“Speaking at APRA is always a great experience for me. I always use it as a learning opportunity — creating a presentation involves making sure you talk to others in the industry. It’s a great way for me to focus on one topic and really clarify best practices and other ways to approach the same issues we all face. Plus, speaking is so great because you get to interact with the APRA membership in a new a different way; it’s unlike being an attendee — it’s more immersive and more satisfying.” - Susan Hayes-McQueen 

"For me, it is about giving back to a community that I am deeply indebted to for all that I have received over the years. You not only get to present in front of your colleagues, but in every session I have done I have walked away with great information!" - Michael Quevli

"Pick a topic that you know and love and share it by presenting at Prospect Development. It is one of the most rewarding professional, intellectual and social experiences you can have." - Thomas C. Hampsey
