APRA-GA's Mentor Program

Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development for both mentees and mentors. APRA-GA is proud to announce its launch of a mentor program to help new or struggling prospect researchers find information and solutions to any questions or concerns he/she may have. 


​The goal of the APRA-GA Mentoring Program is to provide members with the opportunity to partner with experienced prospect development professionals who can offer support, guidance and assistance with research, data mining, analysis and prospect management strategies and resources.
