Join the
Club

Join a global gathering of people who are passionate about optimizing the logistics of scaled-up research—whatever the context.

Our mission is to give dedicated ResearchOps professionals a space to learn, grow, and thrive—together. To keep conversations meaningful, and to foster a tight-knit community, the Club is invite-only. This means that Club members run into similar problems and work with the same vendors.

They use the same lingo, and understand first-hand why something that looks trivial is an operational triumph. A reason to celebrate! Trust and transparency means that members share their expertise openly—we call this "Cha Cha Power."

ResearchOps used to be a lonely journey, but that's changed so much since the Cha Cha Club! It's the safest place to talk about our gains and mistakes in Ops, and this community is always ready to share. Every meeting is a chance to learn a lot and grow around the best people!

It's been incredibly valuable, comforting, and cathartic to have a community of research operations professionals to problem solve with as we develop best practices for the research operations field.

The Cha Cha club promotes a safe space where we can interact with industry leaders and discuss the most important issues that we encounter on a daily basis. Our members are resourceful and generous. It’s such a joy to be a member.

It’s reassuring to know that there are others who are dealing with the same challenges that I’m facing at work. I don’t have to figure everything out on my own! The members are always happy to share their knowledge and experiences. They've helped me grow and move forward in my role more than once.

The Cha Cha Club is invite-only. Not because we're snobs, but because we like to keep the conversation focused and the trust high. If you're a full-time Research Ops professional, and you don’t work for a vendor, we'd love to hear from you.
