     The current state of resources for prospect researchers is seemingly endless. There are pay-as-you-go, subscription, and free tools; websites, podcasts, books, and articles; sources for real estate, stock, private company information, salary surveys, philanthropic giving, and biographical information. How do you make sense of it all?

     Bond Lammey, Managing Associate at Bentz Whaley Flessner and Apra International Board Member, will walk through options to consider in determining which resources to use for which types of requests. She’ll also highlight some specific options for resources by asset/wealth indicator. Attendees should come prepared to discuss their favorite resources and will leave with some new tools to hit the ground running!

     *Lunch will be provided. This free event is open to current APRA Metro DC members only.*
