What do Teams do?
The Teams put the mission statement of MARQUES into practice. Each Team
has a remit within which they operate. Currently MARQUES has 19 Teams,
as well as two special Task Forces, with more than 200 members involved
in them. All the members devote their time to MARQUES as volunteers and
in addition to their regular jobs, and it is thanks to them that MARQUES
can achieve so much on behalf of brand owners. To find out more about
the work the Teams are involved in, please click on the relevant Team
from the list above.
The Teams typically meet in person twice a year, at the Annual
Conference which is usually in mid-September and at the Spring Team
Meeting which is usually in early March. The Teams may also have
telephone meetings and correspond through email during the rest of the
How can I join a Team?
MARQUES holds elections for membership of its Teams every 2 years. The
election procedure enables all long standing MARQUES members (also new
MARQUES members) to join a team, to encourage a better mix of corporate
and expert members and to allow Teams to bring in specific expertise
and/or align the geographical spread of the members with the activities
of the Team.
Team membership is for a two-year term starting which starts on the 1st
of September with an option to serve for a further 2 years at the
discretion of the Team Chair. As well as Team members each Team also has
a Chair and a Vice-Chair to co-ordinate the role of the Team.
Current Teams are in place until 31 August 2021 and applications will
open up for the next term starting on 1 September 2021 on 19th March
2021 with a
closing date of 16th April 2021.
Further information on what is expected of a MARQUES Team Member can be
found in the Team Operations Procedure.
