In addition to the Board, the BHBIA is run by committees who work hard on your behalf. Committee member volunteers are drawn from a cross-section of the BHBIA membership.
- BOBI Committee - The BOBI Committee is responsible for setting the direction and planning the detail of the BOBI Awards process. As well as setting the BOBI Awards agenda, the group have a key role once a year in judging the Real-life submission entries.
- Ethics and Compliance - The goal of the Ethics & Compliance Committee (ECC) is to ensure that the highest levels of legal and ethical compliance are adhered to in all business intelligence practices. This group is responsible for delivering compliance training and webinars, as well as providing a suite of guidance materials to support members. Committee members are drawn from across the Agency, Pharma and Personal Member sectors of the membership, encompassing market research, fieldwork and data analytics expertise.
- Fieldwork Forum - The Fieldwork Forum represents the community of agencies who have a particular specialism in fieldwork/data collection. It is not a fixed committee - all those with an interest in this important area are welcome to join any of our activities (including freelance interviewers/moderators/recruiters who are BHBIA Personal Members as well as anyone working in a pharma company or market research agency who would like to get involved).The BHBIA are very keen that our fieldwork members have the opportunity for a stronger voice and increased recognition as valued partners in the market research process. Our Fieldwork Forums have been looking at a number of ways to foster best practice and to make sure that fieldwork-related issues are given appropriate prominence with the BHBIA membership generally as well as at our major meetings.
- Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - This working group of volunteers are seeking to address the following priority areas: Supporting the BHBIA membership to ensure we have appropriate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion measures in place in the execution of Market Research Studies; Helping member companies to achieve better Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in their Organisations; Listening to understand Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across the BHBIA membership.
