After having a productive 2016, MemCom 2017 is gearing up to have another interesting and full year. We welcome new co-chairs Elizabeth Marconi and Philip Smith, as well as our US and International Committee members. Having both US and International representation gives a diverse voice to our membership.
Elizabeth and Philip would like to thank Corette and Kendall for all their hard work in 2016, as well as their ongoing commitment to MemCom.
2016 was a rewarding year. We launched the Touchpoint program. It helped new members become more engaged with QRCA by increasing their awareness of our offerings. MemCom would like to thank the chapters and individuals who welcomed and assisted in implementing this program. A big thank-you also to Siri Manning and the team at Ewald for their involvement in this program.
Another key activity for 2016 was the trial membership, where QRCA offered up to a three-month trial for non-members. Our LinkedIn group promoted the trial. One hundred twenty-six qualitative researchers took advantage of the offer. Ten percent of these QRCs have since joined as full members — welcome! Also, some of these trial members paid for and attended the conference.
MemCom would also like to remind members that QRCA has been able to secure discounts to many non-QRCA conferences. These are published in Connections and News Bites, usually around registration time.
MemCom is looking for new members to assist with initiatives for existing and new members. If you would like to join our team, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with Philip firstname.lastname@example.org or Elizabeth email@example.com.
