What is Elite Member Status

MSPA introduced an Active Membership initiative in order to acknowledge MSPA Europe/Africa Members who contribute towards the promotion of MSPA Europe/Africa and the Mystery Shopping industry in general. Elite Member status will be valid for one calendar year. 

2024 Elite application is now open; apply before January 19th, 2024!

Who can apply?

All MSPA Europe/Africa members who act as ambassadors of MSPA can apply, and will be awarded Elite Membership status as long as they fulfil 6 of the 15 criteria that have been established (4 compulsory criteria from Tier A, 1 criteria from Tier B and 1 criteria from Tier C).

You can access more information on Elite Membership criteria to read more about it.

Why should I apply?

MSPA Europe/Africa aims to acknowledge Elite Members by:

  • Authorising the use of an ELITE MEMBER logo on all marketing materials
  • Promoting on MSPA website
  • Announcing AWARDS at MSPA Europe Annual Conference

Where should I apply?

You can find the application details on your personal membership page. Note; you complete the 2023 or 2024 form as details reflect your activities over the passed year. When you press the "SAVE" button your details will be saved and send to MSPA. If you change any details or include new details at a later stage please confirm each time by pressing the save button.

When is the deadline for application?

This year, applications will be accepted from March to December. Applicants should complete the dedicated form, and submit their supporting evidence via our website. If the prospective applicant meets the stated criteria, the member company will be granted Elite Member status from January to December of next year. 

How does it work?

All applications, together with the supporting evidence, will be assessed by the MSPA Europe/Africa Membership Team. Once it has been established that the criteria has been met, members will receive notification that their application has been successful. The Elite Member Certificate will be issued, together with the MSPA regular membership certificate, in January of the following year. The list of Elite Members will be published to all MSPA Europe/Africa members in a newsletter and will be published on the MSPA Europe/Africa website by the end of January each year.
