The 2018 QRCA Annual Conference held in Tempe, Arizona, USA from 24 to 26 January 2018 was a great success, not just for the QRCA, but also for two very special SAMRA members:
Our hearty congratulations to Mpho Mpofu who won the QRCA Global Outreach Scholarship. She is only the third South African to win this prestigious award since inception in 2008. Mpho attended the QRCA annual conference for the first time, and you can read about her experience here. She came back inspired!
A big round of applause also goes to Corette Haff, who won the QRCA President’s Award for exemplary service and dedication to QRCA. Corette says “I am gobsmacked and speechless. It is a very humbling honour”. She joins a list of 15 exceptional people and is the first South African who has won this prestigous award. We are not surprised at all that Corette received this honour: congratulations from all of us! Corette (on the right) received the trophy from the current QRCA President, Jay Zaltzman.
