As QTA is still young and in its formative stages, we are continually adding member benefits for our dues-paying members.  We are announcing the following 2012 benefits to start off the year with plenty of benefits to justify the cost of QTA membership. Once you are a current QTA member, we'll keep you informed when additional educational webinars, quilt shop owner round tables and other benefits are announced and made available.

Benefit Description

EDUCATIONAL 
WEBINARS
QTA members can attend educational webinars that address topics that are pertinent to various sectors of QTA membership.  Industry leaders or subject matter experts are speakers, presenters and panelists at these webinars, via video over the internet and audio (via telephone or the internet).

The cost to attend is typically no charge for QTA members and since we know that our members' time is at a premium, the only time spent is that time you are at your computer, attending the session.  No travel is involved in these webinars.
