    MARSQA Board Meetings

    MARSQA Board of Directors (BoD) members and Committee Chairs/Co-Chairs meet monthly through teleconference/other available technology, to discuss activities planned for the year, and to manage general organizational tasks. The BoD teleconferences typically occur on the third Thursday of every month, for one hour. Occasionally, face to face Board of Director meetings may occur just prior to a Membership Meeting when possible. Meeting agendas are developed for each meeting, and meeting minutes are used to capture discussion points, BoD decisions, items for follow up, and voting outcomes.

    Please contact the Board with any questions or concerns you’d like to bring forward!

    MARSQA Awards

    Every year, MARSQA offers two awards: RQAP and SQA. As the new year is upon us, we will soon be looking for nominations for each of these honors. Please keep this in mind!
