Results of the 2015 Member-At-Large Survey
Since we do not always get to meet face-to-face, last December I sent out an on-line survey to learn more about what members are thinking. Here are the results:
First, members ranked these Professional Development opportunities (5 choices with #1 as most popular)
2. Heritage Conference
3. Local Chapter Meeting*
4. LinkedIn Group
5. International Conference
The second question asked which networking opportunities members were most interested in, and 99% of respondents replied that they would like to attend the occasional chapter meeting. *You can find the chapter meetings closest to your location by visiting http://www.iabc.com/regions-chapters/.
My sincere thanks to the 6 members who offered to consider participating as guest bloggers. I will be in touch!
My last question was “Why did you join IABC as a Member-At-Large?” Most members shared that it was either because of a previous chapter experience, or a matter of location, but regardless of circumstance, they want to take full advantage of their member benefits.
This is the question we on the Heritage Region Board will ask ourselves all year: How can we connect with members-at-large in our vast Heritage Region in a meaningful way? We will continue to need your input to inform our planning, so please, feel free to continue to share your thoughts and suggestions here on this blog or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
