INORMS Sister Association Reciprocal Benefit Strategy (ISARBS)

ISARBS is a new initiative that allows participating members of the INORMS community of research management associations to benefit from discounted rates on certain events, publications and other products offered by other associations in the INORMS community.

The list of participating associations can be found here. To find out what these associations are offering, and how to go about securing your discount, please click on the relevant link.

ISARBS is only open to members of research management associations affiliated to INORMS participating in the ISARBS Strategy.

To avoid unintended competition between INORMS member associations, agreed geographical restrictions have been put in place, with the result that some INORMS associations are unable to offer ISARBS discounts in some countries. Please note that, in relation to NCURA discounts, you must be a member of a research management association outside of North America affiliated to INORMS and participating in the ISARBS Strategy.


The current NCURA offerings that are available within the ISABRS Strategy are:

NCURA Financial Research Administration Conference Las Vegas, NV March 6-7, 2023

NCURA Pre-Award Research Administration Conference Las Vegas, NV Mach 9-10, 2023

There will be shared workshop day for these two conferences on March 8, 2023.

Registration and program information will be available in mid-November 2022.

To receive your discount, please contact Vanessa Martinez, Senior Coordinator, Meetings & Conferences, martinez@ncura.edu

More about ISARBS

Based on an original idea from SRAi, ISARBS arose from a discussion at the INORMS Council to explore how best practice in Research Management and Administration (RMA) could be shared in an affordable manner across the world by INORMS respective memberships. An underpinning principle of ISARBS is that members of participating INORMS associations pay the same rates as those paid by the vending association’s own members.
