2014 Small Membership Survey - Now open, please participate!

You may recall that last year we launched our inaugural Small Membership Survey. If you were among the 559 survey participants - thanks so much!

We’re now asking for your participation in the 2nd annual Small Membership Survey - launched this month.  If you haven’t participated yet - please take the survey here is the live link to the online survey:

2014 Small Membership Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7QPFRMD

This year’s survey looks at many of the same topics as last year (e.g., Does size matter? Renewal rates; Funding sources; Key challenges small organizations face) so we’ll be able to compare the findings and identify trends year over year.  In addition, we’ve added a few new survey questions on topics requested by last year’s participants, including:  
  • Methods of recruiting and retaining board members
  • Effective tactics for member engagement
  • Key sources of non-dues revenue
When you complete the survey, you can register to receive the final survey report.

If you’ve already participated - thanks so much!
