A professional membership body to support the development
of people working in operational research, data science and analytics.
As we celebrate our remarkable 75th anniversary, our esteemed society deserves to be commended for our relentless pursuit of excellence in advancing operational research and our profound impact on shaping a better future for industries, governments, and society as a whole.
