Update on Big Insight into
Small Membership Organizations
You may recall that last month we launched an online survey - Small Membership Insight Survey - to gather insight into the world of the small membership organization. So far, we've had 460 survey participants.
We'll be closing the survey on Thurs. Nov. 29th so if you haven't participated yet – please take the survey and share your insight – here's the direct link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/membershipinsight.
Once the survey is closed, we'll be offering highlights of the findings through this newsletter and on the Wild Apricot Blog. But you can receive the full survey report if you take the survey and register!
