Member survey gives direction for the Chinook Group
A few weeks ago we gathered your input to see how our group can grow to meet your expectations. Below are the results from the survey. We will take this into consideration as we expand with our new board. As a side note, many of you wanted to use different mediums to gather information from us, so below are the links to our other social media sources. Thank you to all who participated! It really helped give the Sierra Club Chinook Group some direction.
The survey was conducted over a two-week period in June/July 2012. It was sent to our entire newsletter list of 700 people; the response rate was 11.4%.
69% of replies were not from members; they were non-members because:
- 38% don’t know how to become a member
