What is a Fellow?

As a member of the Research Association New Zealand, you are able to nominate a practising researcher for Research Association NZ Fellowship. The proposed fellow must adhere to the following criteria:

  • Candidates for Fellowship must have been a Full Member of the Association (previously Market Research Society of NZ) for at least the past 5 years.
  • The contribution of the candidate should have benefited the industry as a whole, through exposure of ideas and techniques in the public domain, by expansion of the industry into new areas for broader results rather than pure personal gain, or through contribution to the cohesiveness and perceived importance of the industry.  These types of contribution should be considered in each field of expertise shown below.

Fields of Specific Contribution

Nominators are required to explain the candidate’s contribution under the following headings within the candidate’s nomination profile.

Shared Practical Expertise

Ethical Leadership

Innovative Thought and Practice

Contribution to theory, original and innovative thought, conceptual structures in marketing, policy formation or research into these areas.  Professional teaching reputation may be applicable.

Promotion and Acceptance

Responsible for increasing the public’s knowledge, awareness of, and tolerance for market research.  The impact on both potential respondents and potential clients should be considered.

Economical Impact on the Industry

Has increased the industry’s ‘share of the cake’ or alternatively has improved total industry profits or segment profits in a way that is public and could be shared by competitors.
