RE: Membership Planning Survey -- Respond by September 26, 2012

The Board of Directors of ABC has decided to engage in a planning process to determine how we can best meet the needs of members now and in the future.

As someone who has been involved in ABC as a paid member and as someone who is aware of the issues and challenges facing professionals in the nonprofit sector, you are vital to our process. Your input will help determine the shape of future ABC programming.

Because we want the process to be as inclusive as possible, as a first step we need the benefit of your thinking on a few important questions contained in this survey. Please complete and submit your survey by September 26, 2012. We estimate that it will take approximately 20 minutes to complete this survey.

Survey responses will be compiled into a summary by our Planning Consultant, Frank Martinelli of the Center for Public Skills Training (www.createthefuture.com). This summary will be for use by the Strategic Planning Committee alone during the planning process. To assure confidentiality, returned survey responses will not be correlated with email addresses so comments cannot be attributed to individuals.

If you have any questions about this survey effort, please contact the ABC Board of Directors at email address. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this important effort. We look forward to your input.

Please note that we are asking that you complete the survey during this visit to the survey site.
