From the Chair of the MRS Main Board, Phyllis Macfarlane

Call for Election of MRS Main Board Members

We are looking for some new talent to join the Main Board of MRS and we would like to ask you to consider whether this is something you would be interested in doing, to make a contribution to the activities of MRS.

You’ll be aware from this year’s MRS Annual Report that the research, insight and data sector, whilst experiencing challenging times, is evolving to reflect the constantly changing digital economy.  You will have also noticed that MRS, as your representative body, is continuously developing to do its job more effectively.

The MRS Main Board drives this change – if you think you have something to offer – new ideas or energy or new perspectives - please think about standing in the election.  This online brochure tells you about what the role entails. We need people who want to see the research, insight and data develop and succeed.  We are particularly interested in practitioners familiar with data analytics and the newer techniques and approaches in the researcher’s portfolio, as this is a key strand of MRS’ current strategy.

We are looking for five Main Board members to join the Main Board from April 2020.

If you feel that you would like to be a part of MRS with its evolving agenda and ambitions, please let us know what you can contribute to the new team by entering this election. The nomination form can be found here.

Thank you.

Phyllis Macfarlane
