The Cecilia Hogan Award in Prospect Development

The Cecilia Hogan Award in Prospect Development acknowledges outstanding effort or achievement in prospect development, which may include special projects, articles in development-related publications, or other efforts that have served to promote or assist others in the field of prospect development. It also recognizes exceptional effort or achievement that has served the development mission of the nominee's organization.

This award honors Cecilia Hogan:

Cecilia Hogan earned her bachelor's degree from University of Waterloo. She started at the University of Puget Sound in 1993 as a development researcher in University Relations Research. In 2008 she became the Director of University Relations Research, a position she held for 10 years until she retired in 2018, after 25 years at UPS. She led and grew the prospect research shop at UPS from the infancy of the industry, to a place of prominence. In 2003 she wrote the seminal book, "Prospect Research: A Primer for Growing Nonprofits", that many of us have read and continue to use to train new researchers. Cecilia is a national presenter, accomplished scholar, published author, amazing researcher, as well as a mentor and friend to so many of us in this industry.

The Cecilia Hogan award includes a year of Apra-NW membership and free admission to the Apra-NW regional conference. It is open to all current Apra-NW members, and the board will select and announce the winner prior to that year's conference.

Note: Current Apra-NW board members are not eligible.
