Dear Colleagues,

It has been a busy summer going into a great fall for CARA. I wanted to highlight some good news and upcoming events for our members and non-members alike.

We are pleased to report that CARA has fully rebounded from the 2009-2010 recession. It took some time but we are coming back strong seen by a 32% increase in membership, increase in revenue and decrease in our spending. Many thanks to all the hard work and commitment of the CARA Board and membership to really catapult us onto stronger financial ground.  

Webinar Library
We are excited to announce that we are currently working on building a library of webinars on our website and hope to go live by the end of this year. The library will include next year’s Basic Prospect Research and Prospect Management Bootcamps, as well as, a SEC training online for the very first time!

Annual Conference News
I’m also pleased to announce that CARA’s Annual Conference is back in Northern California! The Conference Committee is hard at work on speakers and fun events. So stay tuned and save the date for May 5-6, 2016 in Sacramento!

CARA is currently accepting presentation proposals. We invite you to share your expertise in the field of prospect management, research, and analytics, for both the new and the experienced.  Click here if you're interested in presenting at CARA's annual conference.
