*Submissions received past the deadline will not be considered.

The PD fund: A great member benefit

“Attending the conference was a positive experience, one that I feel really helped me to grow in my professional development, for my job as an Assistant Prospect Researcher and for the particular duties that I complete in my role on a regular basis.
The new skills that I learned have given me confidence in my abilities as a writer. I feel that my writing has improved as a result of attending this workshop.

I am very thankful that I had this opportunity to develop professionally for my work in the University Advancement office. The experience was pleasurable and useful and I hope to have the support and take advantage of another opportunity like this in the future.”
Samia Aladas
Assistant Prospect Researcher, University Advancement
