    We are thrilled to announce, that for the first time in the history of PSRF (well at least as far back as I can remember), the American Marketing Association is partnering with PSRF and the Insights Association to host our annual Holiday Party.  

    We are thrilled to have the AMA join the fold! 

    Please come celebrate with us on Thursday, November 30th (yes it's early this year, but we wanted to extend the party season).  We are partying at Lake Union Cafe from 6-9pm.  Open bar (wine/ beer), live music and hors d'oeuvres.

    See you there!

    Registration is now open.

    You may have noticed that our calendar contains non-PSRF events.  One of our goals it to provide our members access to other market research related events happening in the Pacific Northwest.  When those events are brought to our attention we will add them to our calendar.  

    We hope you find this service beneficial.  Do let us know if you are aware of an event that we can add.

    As many of you know, PSRF's new season starts each September.  

    I'm thrilled with the luncheon our Programs Committee had put together for this month.  They have assembled a panel of client-side researchers to discuss the use of insights and market research in the development of new products.

    Our panels are always a huge draw.  Come join us and hear what Microsoft, Safeco, Amazon and T-Mobile have to say.

    As we start our planning for next season, we'd love to hear from our member community about events, luncheon topics, and volunteering opportunities.

    Please take a moment to fill out this super short, 5 question survey!

    Thank you!

    After such a successful event, the PSRF Board had decided to hold another Career Fair in 2018.  Although the details are still being finalized, please save the evening of Thursday, March 1st.

    Last year’s Career Fair, held on February 9, 2017 was a very well attended event.  We had 14 area companies and well over 50 job seekers participate.  While at the event, PSRF Board members were available to help mentor those looking for work in the research industry.  We heard great things from both employers and job hunters.  As a matter of fact, we are aware of three people who landed new positions thanks to this event. 

    Companies who attended our first Career Fair in in 2017 included:

    PSRF is thrilled that we can provide this free service to the local research community and look forward to repeating this success on Thursday, March 1, 2018. 

    Although its early, if you are an employer interested in setting up a table at this event, please contact Svetlana Gershman our Special Events Coordinator and she can add you to the list.
