Join the Board

Founded in 1977, PMSA is a not-for-profit organization whose mission focuses on collaboration and education. Since its inception, PMSA has held an annual conference during which professionals in pharma and biotech analytics (manufacturers and consultants alike) come together to discuss analytical methods and best practices for applying prescriber, institution, payer, patient level, and other emerging data resources to help our companies make data-driven, strategic decisions that bring value to the bottom line. Our areas of focus typically include sales force size, structure, targeting and segmentation, incentive compensation, promotion mix modeling, return on investment (ROI) for marketing initiatives, forecasting, payer initiatives, portfolio analysis, and analysis of other key business drivers. The organization is run by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, comprised solely of the employees in Analytical Sales & Marketing operations roles on the manufacturer side. Board membership is an approximately five-year commitment. Throughout their tenure on the Board, members rotate through various positions and lead a number of committees. While volunteering requires significant commitment, especially around the time of the main conference, it offers unique opportunities to:

  • Gain recognition for yourself and your company among management science professionals as a key opinion leader in the field
  • develop a deeply rooted and long-lasting network of peers and analytical services providers
  • influence conference and workshop topics, selection of speakers, and promote fact-based decision making
  • benefit yourself and your employer by enhancing leadership and public speaking skills
  • interact with distinguished speakers, thought leaders, researchers, and executives of leading organizations
  • contribute to the advancement of best practices and new methodology for our profession and community
  • receive free registration for PMSA conferences and symposia during your board service years
