Exciting News: QRCA Members Will Advance in 2018!

Abby Leafe, abby@newleaferesearch.com

QRCA focuses on advancing qualitative research worldwide, and we know that our members are the best in the business, in part because of their commitment to ongoing education and professional development. In 2018 QRCA will formally recognize that commitment by awarding “Advance” status to QRCA members who participate in activities that enhance their knowledge and the knowledge of others.

How does it work? Members who attend educational events or create content about qualitative research to educate others will be awarded points toward their Advance status. When you earn the requisite number of points, you’ll receive the official Advance designation, reflected on the QRCA site. You can also use this status as a way to promote your expertise to clients.

What about content from other sources? We certainly think QRCA is a spectacular way to learn about qualitative, but we recognize that there are other excellent sources out there too. Members will be able to submit activities from other sources to count toward Advance status.

What do I have to do? Nothing! As you attend or present at QRCA events, you will start to accrue points toward Advance status. You’ll be able to track your progress online. But while you’re at it, why not get a jump on your earning and register for a QRCA conference or chapter event today?

Stay tuned in the weeks ahead as we continue to roll out this exciting program!
