Industry Research and Benchmarking Committee Update
The Industry Research and Benchmarking Committee met at the IAPD Annual Convention in Chicago in October. It was Chip Whitfield’s last meeting as chair of the committee. A new chair has not been named yet.
The committee noted the poor response to the Financial Benchmarking Survey. As a result, the committee has decided to investigate other options for gathering data that will be useful to IAPD member companies. One new initiative is a regular quick, one-question survey. Be on the lookout for an announcement when the first of these questions is posted. The committee encourages you to answer the survey and the results will be reported in the next issue of the IAPD News.
