"I am a part of the MERC organization because it gives me opportunities to network and benchmark with others in the industry.  It also introduces me to new programs and solutions that I can use in my corporation to better serve our transferring employees".

As a member of MERC I am able to keep up to date with what is new in relocation, network with my peers and earn continuing education CRP credits at a bargain price.  In addition, MERC provides excellent opportunities to volunteer on committees and serve on the board of directors which, for me personally, has been a great learning experience.  I highly recommend MERC and am proud to be a member.”

Being a part of MERC is rewarding and beneficial for me and my entire Global Relocation team.  We have numerous opportunities to continue growing our knowledge level, extend our network of corporate participates and help everyone learn more.  As we expand in the global relocation space, having connections with MERC has also helped us quickly benchmark our policies and ensure we are competitive and tracking all the possible opportunities in this space as well as share best practices.  MERC is a group I value and am so proud to be a part of.”
