Irons in the Fire: Forging the ACRA Education Program
ACRA’s Strategic Plan recognized that the Education Committee is pivotal in providing benefits to the membership. Your ACRA Education Committee has a full program in development to increase membership benefits and provide continuing CRM education. ACRA’s Education Committee includes:
The Internship Subcommittee has developed guidelines for hiring and managing interns. A link to the guidelines is posted below. These guidelines will be updated periodically to reflect changes in labor laws and industry trends.
The Workshops Subcommittee coordinates with ACRA’s Conference Committee to develop educational workshops at the annual conference each year. In recent years the workshops have included the following topics: Ownership Transition, Marketing, and Working between the Generations. Each year the Workshop Subcommittee seeks input from the membership regarding topics, we are eager for input regarding choices for years to come.
The Career Continuum Subcommittee is working on the following three objective: To identify the curriculum, education, and knowledge essential for career success in CRM; To promote the career continuum to firms so they understand the education and knowledge available from ACRA; and to participate in SAA CRM Expo to reach entry-level students and academics.
