At the end of the year where it all begun, I want to thank you for being a member of the Neuromarketing Science & Business Association. The growth of the association to 159 members in 36 different countries (see image below) in 1 year is hopeful and makes me really happy. For me in person it was an uncommon year. The organization of the first Neuromarketing World Forum, the launch of a new quarterly Neuromarketing Theory and Practice, launch of the ethical code were personal highlights. I am most grateful for the support I receive from the whole community and especially from:

  • The NMSBA Board: Richard Silberstein, Gemma Calvert, Christophe Morin, Martin de Munnik and Rafal Ohme
  • The Editorial Board: Fabio Babiloni, Phil Barden, Neale Martin, Rafal Ohme, Anna Thomas and Leon Zurawicki
  • Our staff: Sara Hoeflaken, Femke van Zandvoort, Roland Classen and Brigitte van West
  • Our local representatives
  • Many volunteers, but especially Monica Diana Bercea and Victoria Bibby

For 2013 I am full of trust that we build further on this solid community. It is my strong believe that we can make a difference together.
Best wishes and a happy 2013 from me and the staff and we hope to inform, engage and inspire you in the 2013!

Carla Nagel
Director, NMSBA
