Welcome to the
Insights Association,
New England Chapter

The Insights Association, New England Chapter (formerly NEMRA). Nationally, the Marketing Research Association (MRA) merged with The Council of American Survey Research Organizations (CASRO). Combined, they formed the Insights Association.

New England is the regional chapter of the national organization. This is the leading industry association for market research and analytics professionals.


Insights Association, New England Chapter’s Spring and Fall Conferences, every May and November, are our capstone events. As a one-day conference, we enjoy top speakers and a sell-out audience of 160 to 200 people, plus networking, cocktails and much more!

Research Rendezvous

Whether you’re new and want to find out what we’re all about, or a seasoned member who wants to see nearby friends, drop in on a Research Rendezvous. Usually in early mornings or evenings, for free or a nominal fee, we host about 10 per year, all around New England.


Close to 1,500 professionals come together through Insights Association, New England Chapter. Roughly 65% are based in leading research and insights firms, while 35% are from the corporations across New England. Join Our Mailing List or our national association!


We’re a fun group! Don’t miss our Summer and Winter parties.
