The PSA PMG was founded by Jennifer Lees-Marshment in October 2001 under the auspices of the UK Political Studies Association

Darren Lilleker took over as Chair in 2005 and has an active committee and recruits people from a wide range of backgrounds, and now has an international outreach with international coordinators, membership and activity.

The mission of the PMG is: to effectively promote and support, by what ever means appropriate, the study of political marketing by all those interested regardless of academic discipline, status, academic institution or profession.

Membership is free, and activated by google groups. Please email Jennifer Lees-Marshment on j.lees-marshment@auckland.ac.nz to be invited to join or signed up to get regular notifications and newsletters directly by email.
