National Awards Competitions
Joseph Doyle Award
The Joseph Doyle Award was established in 1987 to honour Joe Doyle, the Founding President of the PMRS and his contribution to marketing research in Canada. The award is presented to the research professional who achieves the highest mark on the CMRE exam.
PMRS created the Joseph Doyle Award in 1987 to recognize his significant contributions to the practice of marketing research in Canada, including service to the industry as the founding President of the Society. In the past, MRIA presented the award annually to the student who achieved the highest mark in the association's Fundamentals of Marketing Research course. Having made changes recently to our educational program, we no longer offer this four-day workshop.
When PMRS launched the Certified Marketing Research Professional (CMRP) designation in 2003, many of the first recipients earned the credential through a grandparenting process. Today, researchers wishing to pursue the designation must write and pass the MRIA's Comprehensive Marketing Research Exam (CMRE). Therefore, in moving forward, we felt it most fitting to bestow the Joseph Doyle Award annually to the research professional who achieves the highest mark on the CMRE exam.
