QRCA Annual Conference
Proposals are now being accepted for presentation material for the 2014 QRCA Annual Conference (October 15-17 in New Orleans, LA) and the QRCA Conference Speaker Team is looking for the presentations and presenters that will make this conference once again the can’t-miss qualitative event of the year.
Potential speakers are encouraged to present topics that teach new skills (particularly advanced skills), bring other researchers up to speed on the latest and greatest in qualitative research tools and technology or introduce a new perspective from outside our qualitative bubble. And since our theme this year is “Learn, Connect, and Let the Good Times Roll!” speakers are encouraged to infuse their presentations with some good old fashioned fun.
Have a great topic in mind?

|March 15, 2014||Deadline for submitting speaker application forms to firstname.lastname@example.org|
