As most of you may know, the role of the ESOMAR Council is to give strategic direction, ensure the association’s good governance, and provide effective service to its members. With the reach of our community having grown to 35,000 professionals around the world – through 5000 individual and 500+ corporate members worldwide – combined with a robust financial status, I think we can all agree that when looking back over the last 70 years of ESOMAR, preceding Councils have been very successful in their mission! In brief, the association today is in a very good shape.
