CES seeks a survey firm to design, implement, and report findings of an inaugural general national survey of membership. See the Terms of Reference for context and scope of work.
The purpose of a general survey of CES membership is to inform and validate plans, priorities and decisions about resource allocation of the CES Board of Directors and standing Committees, as well as the work of the CES Secretariat, Executive Director and Chapters. It will offer trend data over time and a basis for comparison with Chapter-specific analyses, especially as a biennial or triennial exercise. It will also provide a foundation for a new Membership Strategy to guide CES’ relationship s with current, past and future members and evaluation stakeholders (which will address recruitment and retention, among others).
Proposals are expected no later than April 11, 2016.
