Kudos Corner

Thanks to the amazing members of the Technology Committee, led by Dorrie Paynter and Jennifer Dale! Over the years, they started the QRCA LinkedIn group, worked to improve QRCA SEO, launched the Forum Digest and did so much more to improve the website and member experience. Because the Technology Committee was recently disbanded, with the work moving to staff and the Marketing Committee, our many thanks to all the QRCA members who worked on this committee over the years!

And special thanks to Anya Zadrozny. Anya worked onsite in Los Angeles to capture video footage at the QRCA Annual Conference, and led the video editing process with the Marketing Committee. Her expertise was greatly appreciated!
