2018 QRCA Annual Conference Speakers Are Dynamic, Excited and Confirmed

Sidney Clewe,
Anya Zadrozny,

The Speaker Committee has been hard at work reading through submissions, discussing their takeaways, and confirming speakers.

Presentation topics include creating an interactive, reporting website; learning how to successfully subcontract out services from major firms; discussing how to approach retirement; and elevating report writing and analysis. Speakers from around the world, with a variety of research backgrounds and viewpoints, are set to make the January conference an unforgettable one. There will be topics for those who are very experienced and those just starting to hone their craft. We look forward to joining you in Phoenix to hear these presentations. Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal. It was a difficult process to select just those that best fit our conference.
