*NEW* Professional Body Benchmarking Survey (PBBS) Membership

Written by Andy Friedman, Natasha Afitska, Alexander Witt

Since 2003, PARN has run its triennial Professional Body Benchmarking Survey (PBBS) for professional bodies.

The survey covers governance and internal operations, membership, education, CPD and professional standards.

It acts as a state of the sector review and aims to cover most key functions undertaken by professional bodies, allowing benchmarking across several dimensions, both within and beyond the professional body sector.

The PBBS contains three sections:
• Governance, Staff and Volunteers
• Membership
• Education, CPD and Professional Standards

This report presents results for the Membership section.
