Welcome to PRIMIR Week! Please take a look at the videos below to become acquainted with our next set of research studies. If you are interested in participating in a study, please let us know either by signing up through our online web form or by sending an email to Jason Goodwin.
Study Volunteer Positions
Each study has a volunteer Chair/Co-Chair as well as a small number of panel members. Below is a brief description of each panel position.
Panel Members – A typical study will have a small group of panel members (no more than 10) representing a broad range of companies from within the industry. Panel members are responsible for helping to narrow the focus of a broadly outlined study, provide industry specific knowledge on the topic at hand, review and comment on study drafts, and participate in a small number of conference calls throughout the course of the study.
Chair/Co-Chair – A study chair has many of the same responsibilities as a panel member but works more closely with both APTech staff and the research analyst/consultant performing the study. Chairs help to ensure a study is moving in the right direction by providing expert-level knowledge in the study area, engaging with panel members to ensure their questions and/or concerns are being addressed, providing input on meeting agendas, and in some cases, jumping in to lead discussions surrounding critical topics. A second co-chair may be added if there is interest from multiple volunteers, though no more than two co-chairs would be in place for any study.
For those that sign-up to be on a study panel, we will begin contacting you the week of April 1st and expect meetings to begin in mid-April. The start of each study panel will be staggered so that, depending on the study, the first meeting may happen a few weeks later.
