APRA Summit on Data Mining and Modeling

I would be negligent in my duties as promoting data mining and predictive modeling in the area of fundraising if I didn't promote this upcoming conference. This is a fantastic new forum that will feature many of the brightest and most creative minds in our field, including my boss Josh Birkholz. The conference also coincides with the release of his new book.

I will be there as well, and hope to connect with those who read this blog for in-person discussions about where data mining and modeling is today in fundraising, and where future directions may take us.

Hope to see you there!
