Many river and watershed groups are looking for a new member/donor database. They know it's a big investment with big ramifications and it's easy to get lost in the technical details, especially since today they're evolving very quickly and integrating with the web and email.
This survey gathers information on the real-world experience of groups with their databases. I've been gathering this information since 2007. The results are shared with you and other groups right on my website: www.leadgreen.org.
I'll email a copy of the results (in aggregate - no specific information that would allow any organization to be identified) to everyone who responds. That'll help you evaluate your own database experience.
At the end of the survey I'll ask you more specifically about the degree of information you're willing to share.
