WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOLUNTEER FEEDBACK - Volunteer Satisfaction Survey 2016

Wendy McNeil from the ASA has emailed to ask volunteers to complete a short volunteer survey.  

Further details are below.

Please find below details of the Volunteer Satisfaction Survey 2016. The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete depending on the level of detail you wish to include within your responses. It will remain open until the 1st December.

The more volunteers that complete the survey from your regions and counties, the more representative and comprehensive the data will be. This is being circulated through our normal channels, and has already been sent to the regional office managers and club staff. If you could encourage all volunteers at all levels of the sport (including management boards and committees) to complete, I would be extremely grateful.
