Earlier this year, I was excited to learn that APRA was going to hold its annual Prospect Development conference from July 27-30. As a relatively new researcher who started work in the field a little over a year before the pandemic, I had very limited experience attending conferences.  So, I jumped at the chance to apply for a scholarship to attend this virtual conference and was fortunate to receive funding from APRA Canada. Overall, the conference was an extremely fulfilling and educational experience.
