Celebrate your achievements with us!

I am proud to bring you MRIA's Annual Report, capturing the association's milestones in the past two years. Under ten pages, this can be read in a single sitting. The objective with this publication has been to answer questions we have been asked all year: who we are, who we serve, and what we have accomplished since remeerging post-insolvency. Creating this report has been bittersweet as I revisited multiple data points, also recalling the several times in the past six years I convened with industry heads and others to shape and transform this brand of the future. Unveiling for you "Insights in action: Canada's research association in the knowledge age," also located on our membership renewal page.  I look forward to reading your feedback and comments.
     
In the new year, I can't wait to welcome you at our inaugural January 14th seminar  "Are Polls Obsolete? Boosting Trust, Accuracy and Data Quality in Survey Research." There is still one speaker slot open in Session 3 - "Perceptions of polling: brand implications and corporate reputation." Get in touch if you are interested in sponsoring our event! Your sponsorship will help cover the production of this fun and classy event and we welcome any support in launching our first seminar successfully.
 
If you have attended any of our past live events with similar themes in public opinion polling and marketing research, you'll know the kind of success I am talking about! With digital events, our audience capacity multiplies. You will gain exciting takeways on how to improve client services and stay more relevant in industry whether your're a pollster, a brand-side researcher, an organization that uses marketing and public opinion research, a government official, or a student. Importantly, this forum will connect you to a diversity of thought-leadership driving business and public sector research today.
 
Renew your membership for the next year to avail of opportunities that boost your professional profile. Instructors, please respond to the call for teachers as you scroll below. Looking to connect with marketing research educators for adhoc courses and for enhanced certification curriculum as it updates for the upcoming year. 
 
Finally, don't forget to sign up for our annual holiday party at the end of this message. Among the many surprises in store are merry insights games, gratefulness pitches and mentions of this year's CMRP achievers. Be civil, kind and respectful of one another.
