Research Blog

  • At ACS, we believe that being an active member of the measurement community is an essential component of our work.  By engaging in research, we are presented with an opportunity to not only demonstrate the best practices that we follow in our work, but to also learn from other professionals.  These activities are critical for us keeping abreast of all new methodologies being developed and deliver the most comprehensive effective solutions for our clients.  Every member of ACS is actively engaged and presents at regional, national, and international conferences, and has served on numerous committees and task forces for some of the most prominent measurement related organizations. 

    We are in the process of setting up our research page, and you will notice a number of features that are under construction.  As we move forward, please feel free to forward your thoughts or comments on any features that you see us trying out over the next few weeks.
