Ontario's Rugby Community,

It has been a little over a year since Rugby Ontario appointed a communications coordinator, and since then, the organization has made upgrading the level of province-wide rugby communications a priority.

From announcing club and provincial team achievements, to listing coaching and referee course notifications; from passing along scores and standings in our leagues, to recognizing outstanding individuals in our community; from highlighting national team achievements for Ontarians, to promoting rugby at the grassroots level - we've tried to share Ontario's rugby news as effectively and efficiently as possible.

That said, with a year of improved communications under our belts, we know there's still room for improvement, and we'd like your help in determining how we can get better in serving you from a communications standpoint.

The following is a brief survey, in which the results will help us to shape our Communications Strategy for 2014 (and beyond).

A thank you in advance, for giving us your two-cents on a very important aspect of Rugby Ontario. Together, we'll continue to grow the game in Ontario.

Sincerely,

The Rugby Ontario Professional Staff.
