I copy what Jess said. Once we have trusted testers, then this is probably something to look into. But we aren't there yet. I looked at it last year and filed it away for later. Keep sharing, we are getting closer.

I wrote them a while back. I gave them a summary of what we're working on and asked if their conference would benefit folks that we hope to become testers. They aren't interested in training people, they're more of a group of experts discussing/defining testing standards. It might be a group worth engaging with after we've gotten things off the ground and have a crew of system experts that can contribute.

Excuse the cross-posting but just in case you folks (Ward and Jess in particular) haven't heard about this.  Not sure if it's too "in the weeds" for us but maybe helpful as we train testers in the future????
