General

LLI/NOVA is a member led volunteer organization, and we need constant input from our members regarding who and what we are, as well as how well we are serving their interests and needs. Some of these questions will provide information about the demographic characteristics of LLI/NOVA members. Others will provide information on our members’ satisfaction with current programs and suggestions for future programming, etc. It is important for each LLI/NOVA member to take the time to provide answers to the following questions so that the Board and Committees can do a better job in making an already vital and exciting organization even better. Please take the time to respond to this questionnaire by no later than September 30th.
