CARA is a dynamic organization with a myriad of activities that benefit research administrators across Canada. Our members receive announcements via our list-serve and The CARA Connection, our e-newsletter. Additionally, anyone can follow us on Twitter, view our website, and join our LinkedIn group to experience all the work we are doing in such things as professional development, advocacy, and mentoring.
