Welcome Message from the Co-Chairs

Welcome to the 2018 CASE Asia-Pacific Advancement Services Conference! We invite you and your institution to join us in this 3-day conference. As long time advancement services professionals, we believe that what we do every day is the basis for the advancement enterprise. Without biographic information, gift administration, research and prospect management, stewardship, reporting and analytics, fundraising and friendraising would be significantly more difficult.

This year's conference will not only give an overview of Advancement Services, but will also help all those in advancement understand how to use data to make strategic decisions. We welcome anyone who wants to learn how to use data analytics to drive institutional advancement and engagement. The use of data analytics in advancement is relatively new and this is an opportunity for you to ask questions and share ideas with peers. We will learn from each other about how we might do things differently and talk about the issues which affect our work. Most of all, the connections we will make over the course of the conference will help expand our networks. In joining the conference, we encourage you to be active participants! You will get more out of the conference, and so will we as conference co-chairs and session leaders. Plus, it will be more fun for all of us if we are all fully engaged.

We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane!
