With CARA you already have a strong online community. Here are some reminders and tips on how to fully leverage it:
Participate: Join the CARA LinkedIn group and connect with others members, share an article or your favourite recipe and introduce yourself to your SIG, get involved as a volunteer and fully participate in your professional association.
Take an online course: Spring term for the Research Administration Certificate starts in May. You can register now and if you are taking Contracts and Reporting, we have a free textbook and study guide for you and Sarah will send you all the discussion questions in advance (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Take on demand webinars: Many of these webinars are free and the rest are only $30 for CARA webinars.
Register for an upcoming webinar: These webinars are also discounted for members with many no cost offerings. Volunteers receive 2 free webinar passes a year so get involved in and access even more webinars at no cost.
Give: If you are able to help others access online learning and advance their careers, now is the perfect time to donate to the CARA bursary at Mohawk College: To donate please click "other" and enter code 7555-97.
Show Kindness: Now is the perfect time to apply to share your expertise as a mentor, webinar presenter, with a CARA blog or CARA Connection article.
