Speaker Subcommittee Co-Chairs

By now, you’ve hopefully marked the dates on your calendar for this year’s conference. It may be a bit early to book your flights, but now’s the time to think about making a contribution to the conference program.
Proposals are being accepted for the 2015 QRCA Annual Conference, which will be held from October 7-9 in Orlando, Florida. The Conference Speaker Team is looking for presentations and presenters that will once again make this conference the can’t-miss qualitative event of the year. Proposals will be accepted through March 13, 2015.
The Speaker Team is looking for presentations that teach new skills (for seasoned QRCs as well as for relative newcomers to the field); that bring other researchers up to speed on the latest and greatest in qualitative research tools and technology; or that introduce a new perspective from outside our qualitative circle. Potential speakers are encouraged to relate their presentations to the theme: “Whole New World of Research.”
Each speaker (or speaker team) will receive one complimentary conference registration, which is a great incentive to consider submitting a proposal.
Have a great topic in mind?
The proposal process is designed to be easy and fast, so don’t worry about having your presentation already developed! Share your nugget of an idea, articulated as best you can, and the Speaker Subcommittee will take it from there. Just be sure to get your proposal in by March 13, 2015.
Here are the two steps you should take to submit a proposal:
If you’re “on the fence” about submitting a proposal and want to talk to somebody about it, send an email to 2015Conference@QRCA.org and a team member will get in touch with you right away.
Do you have a topic you’d like to see presented at the conference but don’t feel compelled to speak on that topic yourself? Let the Speaker Team know about that, too. The team is at your service and strives to make programming as relevant as possible to all attendees.
The Speaker Team welcomes proposals from non-members as well as QRCA members. So, if you have someone in mind from outside QRCA that you’d like to see present at the conference, pass this info on to them. If you don’t feel comfortable letting them know, tell us (2015Conference@QRCA.org) who they are and we’ll contact them.
