Apra-IL Fall Networking Conference 2019
Join the members of Apra-IL for our fourth annual networking conference at the Art Institute of Chicago! We will gather in the Nichols Board of Trustees Suite in the beautiful Modern Wing of the Museum.
We will start our afternoon off with an opportunity to network and have professional head shots taken (please register in advance with a $15 fee – space is limited)*. We will then hear from our colleagues at Loyola University of Chicago about how student workers and support staff can be partners in our work. Next, our panel of prospect development professionals will discuss how organizational culture impacts their work.
Following the event, follow your fellow members to a sponsored happy hour - come have a drink with the Chapter!
