Data Exchange Survey Coming in This Month!
The Data Exchange Task Force was commissioned by the NASMM Board of Directors to drill deeper into the challenges and successes of Senior Move Management companies by assembling and aggregating key data points about the Senior Move Management profession. This Task Force conducted their first survey in the summer of 2016. A new survey will be distributed in January to those members who are Circle of Service Members, NASMM A+ Accredited and/or SMM~C Certified.
