Join the march — to March 2014!

Joan Phaup 2013 (3)Posted by Joan Phaup

In early fall, we step back and marvel at how quickly the year has gone by and acknowledge the fact that it will soon be over.river walk

This means, of course, that although the Questionmark 2014 Users Conference is just over five months away, time will fly before we meet March 4 – 7  in San Antonio, Texas. And that, in turn, means that now is the time to get ready for this essential learning event.

Here are a few ways to get started:

Get with the program: We have begun building the conference agenda and will be adding to it in the coming weeks. Boookmark the schedule-at-a-glance and keep an eye out for new developments. Please note: If you are new to Questionmark, plan to attend the full-day Boot Camp for Beginners workshop. Bring your own laptop and get some basic training before the conference starts.

Get on the program: They said that when you give to something you get more out of it — and that’s true of customers who participate in the conference as case study presenters and peer discussion leaders. They make loads of connections with their peers and Questionmark staff. They also receive some red carpet treatment, including a special dinner in their honor — and we award a 50% registration discount per case study. So think about what you’d like to contribute in 2014. We’re eager to hear from you. See the call for proposals for details.HildersonPhoto_DSC3383

Plan ahead: Plan your budget now and consider your conference ROI. The time and effort you save by learning effective ways to run your assessment program will more than pay for your conference participation. Check out the reasons to attend and the conference ROI toolkit here.

Sign up soon for early-bird savings: You will save $200 by registering on our before December 12 — and your organization will save by taking advantage of group registration discounts. Get all the details and register soon.

See you in San Antonio!
