Are you a corporate or foundation researcher? Or are you interested in learning more about corporate and foundation research? Then come to the first APRA-IL Salon of 2016! Our topic is all things corporate and foundation research. We will have special attendees from the C&F teams at both Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. They will be discussing how their organizations operate and manage its C&F research, in addition to answering any questions you may have.
The reading materials for this salon are a little different. Instead of traditional articles, participants are encouraged to review Elisa Shoenberger’s Corporate and Foundation Relations Survey, which appeared as a post on the APRA-IL blog in August 2015. In it, she asks shops from across the country a series of questions concerning corporate and foundation relations. We hope to ask corporate and foundation researchers some of these questions at the salon, and gain a better understanding of how different organizations operate.
We hope to see you at 6:00pm on Wednesday, February 10th at Café Cito at 26 E Congress Parkway in Chicago.
