Since 2003, PARN has conducted triennial International Benchmarking Surveys for professional bodies, which focus on the following aspects of operations: |
Our most recent survey ran from October 2012 until January 2013. In
return for completing our survey, respondents received a free copy of a new and improved benchmarking report
(view sample report) which compared their professional body to
all other professional bodies that completed the survey.
If you missed this opportunity to take part, you can still be benchmarked against the recent results and get a customised 2012 Benchmarking Report (For £150 + VAT).
This time around, we also ran a prizedraw for respondents and have given away three free
places on any of our Training Courses (Worth £295 - £350 each!)
Congratulations to our winners for 2012 - and thank you for taking part!
