CIM (The Chartered Institute of Marketing) has been representing its members and the industry for over 100 years. A Royal Charter was granted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1989 and the governing principles remain as relevant today as when first set out by Royal Charter: “…to promote and develop the art and science of marketing and to encourage, advance and disseminate knowledge, education and practical training in and research into the art and science”. CIM strongly believes that high standards of quality and integrity are vital to the success of the marketing profession, so maintaining, developing and setting standards within the industry is a key part of CIM’s work.
