It has been a busy start to the year for MemCom with several activities happening.
New Member Engagement
We all know the importance of engaging new members as soon as they join. To build new member engagement, we’re creating an Ambassador Program. This program will provide new members more opportunities to interact with the greater QRCA membership, as well as with Chapters and SIGs.
Yes, it’s back! Our successful membership drive was approved for another year. In 2014, fifty new members joined QRCA at the recommendation of an existing member.
How does it work?
For every new member you recruit for QRCA membership, you receive one ticket for a drawing to receive a free 2016 QRCA membership.
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 2015 Annual Conference in Florida.
Think about who you know that may be interested in QRCA membership.
Send them a quick email, tell them about how beneficial QRCA has been for you, and encourage them to join. It’s that easy!
As many of you have seen, the QRCA LinkedIn site has passed 11,000 members — a great achievement! We’d love to convert some of these qualitative researchers to full QRCA membership. To do this, MemCom will engage more on this site, alerting members and non-members alike to the great benefits of QRCA. A wonderful way for members to help is by participating in the conversations to create further discussion and interest.
The start of a new year is always a good time to provide a reminder of the great discounts on training offered through QRCA. Check out the Member Discounts Button on the QRCA website.
NewsBites is also a good source to check for discounts on partner conferences, thanks to the great work of the Industry Relations Committee.
MemCom has grown! Say hello to Stacy Dye and Sharon Laukhuff, who joined our team. If you’d like to be part of this active committee, please don’t hesitate to contact either Philip Smith email@example.com or Kendall NashKendall.Nash@burke.com.
And a warm thank-you to Maria Cedillo. Unfortunately, her increased workload will not enable her to continue to be part of MemCom this year. We thank Maria for all her help! It was greatly appreciated!
