Join Tracey Church as she works through research and gift acceptance policies in relation to the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada (federal legalization in 2018) and the US (~12 states to date). Research includes case studies from the United States, and examples of gifts already accepted in Canada. Tracey also explores the different regional considerations (including provincial and municipal), and lastly, potential ethical and public relations considerations which may impact your policies. Attendee input is welcome as the conversation continues!

The Immigration and Nationality Act requires that the hiring of foreign workers by companies operating within the United States not adversely affect the wages of American workers comparably employed. In order to ensure compliance, companies that sponsor foreign workers through visa programs are required to submit detailed labor condition applications to the US Department of Labor. Most relevant for prospect researchers, companies that use the H-1B visa to sponsor highly skilled foreign workers must submit an application to the Department of Labor that contains, among other things, each worker's job title, workplace zip code, expected salary or salary range, and more. The Department of Labor publishes detailed information of this sort from hundreds of thousands of H-1B visa applications annually, with fields such as information technology, medicine, finance, and law being especially well represented. This webinar will share where to find these data, describe their strengths and limitations, and illustrate with examples.

Apra is excited to bring you another New Researchers Symposium in 2019! This winter 2019 program brings back the popular in-person networking opportunities and exercises combined with web-based learning in the weeks leading up to the event. Register for the New Researchers Symposium and you will have access to the online community of attendees and faculty experts, and a one-day, hands-on training taking place Thursday, February 28.
The program focuses on the four key areas of prospect development: Campaigns, Prospect Research, Prospect Management, and Data Analytics. It also explores fundraising terms and technologies, as well as techniques and resources for finding and analyzing biographical, background, and financial information; introduces participants to corporate and foundation research, and explores how available data can be used to formulate gift capacities and inform fundraising operations. In addition, the program covers guiding concepts related to prospect research, such as navigating ethical considerations in conducting research, best practices for managing and reporting prospect data, and creating quality research products.
