The SQA Board of Directors has created this course for SQA members.

It will provide a better understanding of SQA leadership responsibilities and an understanding of how SQA is governed. SQA members who are considering running for election or volunteering on Committees or within Specialty Sections will gain a better understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of the positions and the resources and assistance SQA offers to support those positions;. It will also provide an opportunity to meet and network with past, current and future SQA leaders and to develop and discuss leadership concepts through fun group exercises.

At the end of the course, the participants shall be able to: 
  • Describe how to attract appropriate volunteers and how to get them actively involved.
  • Discuss methods of motivating and rewarding volunteers.
  • Describe how various leadership activities are linked to the SQA strategic plan.
  • Implement effective leadership transition (when leaving a leadership position) so that progress can continue.
  • Demonstrate practical and effective communication techniques.
  • Identify who to ask for help with SQA leadership activities.
  • Use the SQA website to effectively lead and manage committees, specialty sections and/or other ad hoc groups and subcommittees within SQA.
  • Use SQA Headquarters services to minimize workload and maximize results.
