"Our members needed a source of up-to-date data on the health and future of our industry. ARI helped us develop a brand new business confidence survey that has been well received by members."

National Distribution Association

"One of our key member services is our compensation and benefits survey. ARI suggested major enhancements to the report format and data collection forms, greatly improving the value of the report. Most importantly, when we agreed to a schedule with ARI, they met all the milestones of the project and delivered the report on time and right on budget."

Director of Communications
National Technology Association

"Thanks for the great job you did of surveying our members and facilitating the strategic planning session with our Board. They appreciated your candor and your willingness to tackle the major challenges we face."

Executive Director
International Distributor and Importer Association

"Thank you for your partnership in working with the various demands from staff and board members to create a compensation survey that met the needs of our membership. As an organization representing a specialized profession with individuals receiving a variety of compensation packages, expectations were high in creating a simple to understand survey that would collect the data needed for a complete report. With your leadership, we were able to create a great survey, realized strong participation and ultimately produced a report with needed information for our profession."

Executive Director
Professional Healthcare Association

"ARI has been our research partner for many years and over many different surveys. Whether it's meeting with our staff, working with committees, or developing innovative products like our online salary calculator, we can always count on the professionalism of your staff."

Director, Communications and Product Development
International Professional Society

"Over the years, we have relied on ARI to design and conduct surveys for many of our client associations. In each and every case, ARI delivered top-quality research at a reasonable cost. ARI protects the confidentiality of our clients associations and their members."

Association Management Company

"The value of our partnership with ARI was fully realized when you designed a series of surveys to assess the viability of a major association meeting. The research helped our Board take an objective look at the impact of the meeting on our budget and gave them the insight necessary to make the tough decisions."

Deputy Executive Director
National Legal Association

"As a valuable member service, my trade association publishes regular reports on industry-wide shipments and market forecasts. For nearly 20 years, ARI has supported our data programs by making direct contact with industry members to obtain and confirm reported data, promptly tabulating that data, participating in committee meetings and conferences, and by representing the industry with the media."

Executive Vice President
International Manufacturers Association

"Our HR committee had tried for years to set up a salary and compensation survey, but without success. ARI worked with the committee to create benchmark jobs that became the framework of a very successful new survey program."

Director of Membership
National Distribution Association

"Our members trust ARI to keep their data confidential and to ensure the consistency and accuracy of reporting by all participants."

Managing Director
National Manufacturer Association

"The ARI services provided to our association have been exceptional. In the period of time that ARI has been administering our product shipment report we have succeeded, for the first time in years, to not only receive the information on time, but also in several formats to accommodate our member needs and expectations."

Executive Vice President
National Manufacturing Association

"I would wholeheartedly recommend ARI to any association interested in conducting membership research. I appreciate the quality of work you conduct, the personal attention devoted to our project, and the very useful end product."

Director, Membership Development and Marketing
Health Care Professional Society

"ARI gets it done, on time, at reasonable prices with no excuses. They are a valuable extension of our staff that has helped establish the credibility of our association."

International Trade Association

"ARI has been instrumental in helping establish meaningful compensation and operating cost surveys that have become integral management tools for the memberships of two national associations. ARI professionals understand the dynamics of associations. They know how to gather information effectively. And, as former top association executives themselves, they know how to interpret and communicate information accurately and effectively. Having ARI on your team is like having your own in-house research department. They're invaluable."
