The MemCom team has been busy in May working with the Board on a few areas related to membership.
During May we sent a LinkedIn message, as a ‘Manager’s Choice’. (Thank you, Ricardo Lopez.) This message alerted the 11,600 plus members to this significant change in QRCA member criteria. It read:
QRCA membership has expanded to include qualitative researchers working in areas of product design, branding strategy and user strategy, and academics (college professors and graduate students teaching qualitative research). This expansion reflects the changing and dynamic qualitative environment. So if you considered becoming a member of QRCA and didn’t feel you qualified now is the time to join. Here’s a quick link to the QRCA membership page. http://www.qrca.org/default.asp?page=join_qrca
Why don’t you go to LinkedIn and add your comment?
MemCom has been working to develop a monthly alert on LinkedIn about the benefits of being a member. These are the areas we’re going to highlight over the next few months. We’ll be talking with other QRCA committees to drive these messages.
- Mid-year discount
- Benefits of membership
Like all LinkedIn conversations, the more people that like and discuss a message, the more it is seen. So, please, when you are on LinkedIn, make a comment!
New Member Ambassador Program
The broad idea is that an existing QRCA member is teamed with a new member – hopefully through location or interests. The existing member buddies them for at least the first year through occasional contact such in person at a meeting, emails, or the occasional phone call.
A big thank you to Sharon Laukhuff for taking on the role of ambassador coordinator and to Pascal Patenaude for serving as the content curator for the communications to Ambassadors. They will be working with Ewald, MemCom and the Chapters to ensure our new members are welcomed to QRCA and informed as to what is happening.
Don’t forget about our annual membership drive. For every new member that you recruit for QRCA membership, you will receive one ticket for a drawing. There is no limit to the number of new members you can bring in or the number of tickets you can have in the draw!
The drawing will be held at the Conference in Florida and the winner will receive a FREE membership for 2016. It’s that easy!
If you’d also like to be part of this active committee please don’t hesitate to contact either Philip firstname.lastname@example.org or Kendall Kendall.Nash@burke.com.
