    Historically, the last quarterly meeting of the year for RCA has been an end-of-the-year discussion panel, and this year is no exception. The panel will be made up of consultants and HR practitioners and this year’s focus will be around some things that worked in 2013 and how to overcome those things that haven’t. The discussion will be facilitated and based on questions from the membership. 

    In an effort to make the discussion more meaningful to you and your organization, it would be extremely helpful if members and guests could provide questions in advance for the panel. Please submit your questions by simply adding a comment below or via email at
