Note from the Editor | Spring Into…

With the prediction of an early spring coming from one completely reliable little hermit-like mammal (the groundhog), the word spring is rolling around in my head. As you read this issue of the Catalyst, what will you ‘spring’ into? To kick off, we hope you’ll ‘spring’ into the new season of the SRAI podcast, Shop Talk. This season’s theme centers Around the World of Research Administration. Click here for more information on the first episode!

We also hope you’ll you hop, or ‘spring’ right over to the View from the Top and read Gloria Greene’s article this month about professional growth and the training programs offered by SRAI. From there, you can jump over to Part 2 of our Spotlight on Motivation and Retention Factors in Research Administration

From there, skip over to Jason Guilbeault’s article about unique allowable cost scenarios, and then leap into Part 2 of the CRA Chronicles focusing on general preparation for test days. If all this jumping around is making you tired and you’re questioning your health, it may be a good time to settle in and read about the Dark Mode, offering some tips and tricks to help make your eyes happier (and maybe your brain too!).

If these put the ‘spring’ back into your step, then be sure to take a stroll through the Members Corner. If one of these articles this month happens to be the ‘spring’ board for an idea you want to explore, reach out to the Catalyst Committee! We’d love to help you grow your idea into an article.
