INORMS Sister Association Reciprocal Benefit Strategy (ISARBS)

If you are a member of one of the INORMS member associations, you can secure discounted rates for most of ARMS’ online offerings. You will pay the same rates as ARMS members!

To secure your discount, email and provide us with:

  • full name;
  • email address;
  • employing institution;
  • the name of your RMA association (must be one of the participating INORMS Associations).

and, if appropriate:

  • your membership number/unique identifier (not all Associations have this);

Following this, ARMS will provide further information on how to access your discount(s), for you to then register for your event(s)/workshop etc on the ARMS website.

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 our 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.
