With our industry undergoing a period of accelerated transformation, and in an environment where there is an increased scrutiny on consumer privacy and data protection, AMSRO’s mission ‘to position our industry for the benefit of members’has never been more important or relevant.
As the national peak industry body representing almost 100 of Australia’s leading market and social research organisations, with over 5,000 employees (representing approximately 75% of the industry*) AMSRO continues to have the changing needs of our member organisations and industry in sharp focus.
The year ahead promises to be an exciting time of growth and change for AMSRO, and we encourage your continued support by renewing your 2018-19 membership – please go to the website: http://dataandinsights.com.au/amsro-membership-renewal-2018-19/for details or call (02) 8017 6717.

Revised Membership Categories
In October last year members voted overwhelmingly in favour of adopting AMSRO’s amended rules [http://dataandinsights.com.au/about/amsro-articles-of-association/] which enable us to expand our coverage to encompass a broader range of organisations in our industry like data analytics and software/technology providers and corporate research (client) departments. Such organisations are key organisational players in our industry and we believe, to have everyone ‘in the tent’ and aligned to our co-regulated, best practice environment would benefit all.
The two new membership categories are:
This new approach enables us to ‘broaden the tent’ so we can better represent all organisations in our ever-evolving industry, while still maintaining our core differentiation for AMSRO Trust Mark Member Organisations. This approach will give current AMSRO members access to new suppliers, new potential clients and even better networking opportunities.
Further details of each category and application criteria are available here: http://dataandinsights.com.au/amsro-membership-renewal-2018-19/or by calling AMSRO on (02) 8017 6717.
