Draft: New member survey (have a look) 04 Jun 2008 05:56 #69

Here in the North Carolina Piedmont with the help of the FCA chapter in the Triangle area, we're having a meeting tomorrow to see if there is sufficient interest to form a new chapter. I thought it might be worthwhile to distribute a survey to those who come as a way of identifying their interests and skills, to help in planning the chapter's initial projects and involving members in appropriate ways.

I'd appreciate it if you'd have a look at this draft of a survey and let me know what you think. Am I leaving out anything obvious?

Thanks to all,
Holly Stevens
