Request for volunteers

What if you had a chance to design the AOCS membership survey?

I am seeking volunteers to review and critique this year's survey. To be the focus group whose goal is refining the survey questions and responses.

The survey will take – maybe 30 minutes – to read through and make comments upon. Your responses will be used to improve the questionnaire before it is distributed to the full membership. Moreover your comments will ensure the survey results provide AOCS leaders with the information to know what our members value, expect and want from their professional society. 

So, do you have some time to help with the survey development? Please contact me directly by Wednesday, June 18th.

And in case you are curious, the full survey is scheduled to open to all AOCS members in mid-July. Look for the email message with link to the survey site to arrive next month.
