NRC recognizes the connection between survey research and the innovation process, and they work to ensure reliable results. “Local governments today need credible data, especially when it comes to considering new practices, measuring performance, strategizing and budgeting,” said NRC President Tom Miller. “We’ve had a long-standing friendship with AFI, and we support their mission to inspire innovation in the public sector.”
Serving local government and other public-sector clients since 1994, NRC maintains a database of over 700 jurisdictions nation-wide. Their suite of benchmarking surveys has gathered opinion data on thousands of U.S. adults, city staff and local businesses.
“We have seen local governments do amazing things with a great idea, community feedback, and a supportive network to rely on,” said NRC Marketing Director Angelica Wedell. “This partnership is a wonderful way for NRC to be a part of all of that.”
