NASP occasionally enters into research partnerships with outside individuals or organizations. Partnership proposals may be submitted at any time to the Director of Research, who forwards them
to the NASP Research Committee for review.
NASP encourages such partnerships. To be viable, research partnerships should benefit the association as a whole, its members, and/or the profession. Proposals for partnerships will be subjected
to more stringent evaluation standards than those applied to requests to gain membership access for research purposes.
Following approval, a signed agreement between the researcher(s) and NASP will be executed, in which specific responsibilities are assigned and ownership of the data is specified. NASP Executive
Director, Susan Gorin, is responsible for signing the agreement on behalf of the association.
