RING: Parents as ProspectsThursday, March 21, 2013
8:30 am - 9:00 am Coffee and Networking
9:00 am - 10:30 am Program
For many nonprofit organizations, parents remain an untapped resource with great potential. In this discussion, we will share a variety of strategies to acquire and evaluate parental information. We will also discuss next steps and through the group discussion, come up with suggestions on how to best work on prospects from this vital population. This group is open and recommended for those with formal parents programs or those just starting to organize their program, frontline staff, and researchers. Please bring your experiences, questions, and ideas and share them with the group!
