FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 16, 2016
Washington, DC – The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) today announces a major initiative to rebrand the association as it marks its 40th anniversary at the ACRP 2016 Meeting & Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.
The initiative was announced today by ACRP Executive Director Jim Kremidas during a keynote session at the ACRP 2016 Meeting & Expo, where he unveiled ACRP’s new logo, seen below.
“The clinical research landscape is fast evolving,” Kremidas said in his address to the more than 2,000 ACRP members and attendees at the ACRP 2016 Meeting & Expo. “As clinical research operations evolve and modernize, so too will ACRP. As we have for 40 years, we will continue to be here for you; to help you learn – and to help you realize your true potential – by providing you with unparalleled training and development opportunities.
“We will listen to you – to work to understand your needs and desires so we can better serve you – and to empower us to champion your interests, perspectives, and opinions,” he continued. “And we will be your lifelong partner as you continue to better the lives of patients around the world and drive innovation in clinical research.”
ACRP’s rebrand initiative will culminate in a third quarter launch of a new website that promises to more efficiently and effectively connect ACRP’s 13,000 members with valuable tools, resources, and information.
“What you see is much more than a new logo, or a tagline,” Kremidas told ACRP 2016 Meeting & Expo attendees. “What you see is evidence of our ongoing evolution as an organization that is committed to you and the achievement of our mission to promote excellence in clinical research.”
ACRP’s creative partner in the rebrand initiative is Langland, an award-winning healthcare advertising agency based in the United Kingdom.
“I want to sincerely thank the team at Langland for bringing passion, creativity, and understanding to ACRP’s rebrand initiative,” Kremidas said.
