Speaker Opportunities

We’re excited to announce that Apra Canada will collaborate with Apra Great Lakes* to hold a virtual conference from Monday to Friday, October 4-8, 2021 with one session per day at various times to accommodate the needs of attendees.

Right now, we’re looking for speakers who can represent Apra Canada chapter to present at the conference on Oct. 4th or Oct. 8th, 2021. We’d like to have coverage on most of the broader Apra-relevant topics (i.e. prospect research, prospect management, professional development, innovation/collaboration, etc.) As a speaker, you will receive complimentary conference registration. We invite proposals for 60-minute individual presentations, short workshops or panel presentations.

This is a great opportunity to present ideas, expertise, and successes within prospect development with your peers across the border. If you’re interested in presenting at this virtual conference, please contact Alice Wen (, Director of Conference, Apra Canada by May 31st, 2021.

Apra Canada members are welcome to register for this virtual conference. More details about the conference registration will be provided once further information becomes available.

Sample Schedule (in progress)

  • Tuesday, Oct. 5th: an analytics-focused presentation held by Apra Great Lakes-Indiana chapter (with book giveaway)
  • Thursday the 7th: a DEI-focused presentation held by Apra Great Lakes-Michigan chapter

*Apra Great Lakes is a collaboration between Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin chapters. It originated as an in-person conference in Chicago in October 2020 as an opportunity for chapter members to network regionally and to be exposed to a bigger set of presenters and colleagues.
