Be Confident in the Quality of your Marketing Research:
Hire a Gold Seal corporation to ensure you receive the highest quality of research available. MRIA's third party auditing process verifies that their internal business practices are of the highest standard.

Hire a Certified Marketing Research Professional (CMRP). CMRPs have earned the right to use this designation based on substantial past experience and/or by passing the Comprehensive Marketing Research Exam.

Adding Value & Recognition for Gold Seal Agencies  

The MRIA and its Research Advisory Council (RAC) Board are working on exciting initiatives to increase Gold Seal member benefits and to provide greater visibility and recognition of the commitment and investment that our Gold Seal members make to our industry as a whole.
