The Marketing Research and Intelligence Association may be dead, but that doesn't mean we can't still get together and socialize. Same deal, every other month we meet for happy hour at a bar (drink, don't drink, it doesn't matter, just tip your server) and socialize, talk shop, share upcoming opportunities and news... whatever. Our community is better and stronger when we connect with each other.
The difference is this time we're opening it up to all researchers - academic researchers, UX researchers, market researchers, competitive intelligence researchers, quant researchers, qual researchers, etc. If you do research for a living, we want you at our party.
