The purpose of this survey is to find out how you prefer to receive information from, and engage with, the SA Arid Lands NRM Board.  With an increasing reliance on digital information channels, we are particularly interested in access to the internet and online usage across the region, and how this relates to the Board’s communications and engagement.  We estimate the survey should take between five to ten minutes.  We will use the information you provide to tailor communication and engagement to community preferences, and to track changes from a similar survey conducted in 2013.  We encourage you to add further information where appropriate.  General results from the survey will be published in the June edition of the Across the Outback e-newsletter.
