One of GRBN’s key objectives is to help strength national associations. Here are some of the reasons why:
  1. The National associations are of critical importance to research businesses. They are critical as the ‘voice of the industry’ to legislators, regulators and the media, shaping legislation and regulations and the maintenance of self-regulation; commerce; standards-setting; business ethics, practice and management, and client service.
  2. National associations deliver training, organise conferences, collect statistics, and make representations on behalf of their members. They also provide compliance structures supported by established codes of conduct and are a repository of expertise on national legislation, culture and customs.
  3. In a tough economic climate, national associations are a key tool for research businesses to promote their interests and to secure the future of the sector.
GRBN strives to assist national associations in serving their members and achieving their goals.
