The Clinical and Contract Research Association launches Affiliate Membership
The Clinical and Contract Research Association (CCRA) has launched its Affiliate Membership.
Up until now, it says membership has been focussed entirely on corporate bodies but now Affiliate status is offered to individuals who are freelancers and contract workers within the clinical research industry. By being part of a trade organisation, CCRA states that these members will have a voice in shaping the future of the industry whilst increasing the recognition of their profession.
The Affiliate Membership offers the opportunity to build this category of membership into what the members need, according to CCRA. There are no pre-conceived ideas as to what events, courses etc. should be run and what they will entail. It will be up to the membership to steer this chapter of members through its own committees, allowing them to progress not only the industry but also their careers.
