Looking Back on 2013…

As the year draws to a close, I would like to reflect on some of the highlights for Queen's IRC. This year we launched a new easier-to-navigate website and began using social media. We have produced a number of short videos about our programs, along with a Tip of the Week series and Q&A clips from our interviews with facilitators and experts. Our Archive Revitalization Project was launched, and has added many terrific resources to the Research and Resources section of our website.

Give Your Organization the Edge in 2014

We're listening to you. Our recent Sales and Marketing Survey results revealed that over 70% of respondents like early bird/ promotional discounts. While we normally offer an early-bird discount if you register more than 60 days ahead of the program, we decided for a limited time only, to double your early bird discount when you register for a 2014 program. You will save $750 on 4-5 day programs and $350 on 2-3 day programs if your register before December 31, 2013.
