The CES is excited to officially announce the launch of our first general survey of membership! You will receive an email from Probe Research on Monday, October 3, 2016 to participate in this national survey. If you have not received this email from Probe Research by October 6, 2016 please contact them directly (1-877-538-5545). [Please note that the survey will exclude 322 CES members who opted-out in their member profile from participating in surveys for organizational planning; if you wish to reconsider or are unsure, please contact Probe].
Your responses are very important to help CES respond to member interests, concerns and ideas. CES is committed to serving its members in the best ways possible. This survey will clarify expectations of current membership while informing CES about opportunities for future services and areas for improvement.
The questionnaire is based on best-practices in membership-based surveys, and your responses will be kept be strictly confidential by Probe according to the highest practices of research ethics and data privacy. The survey is a very solid design modelled after CES Chapter and subject-focussed surveys, as well as other society surveys (e.g. AEA, MRIA, AAPOR). Sincere thanks to CES Chapters, the national Board of Directors and Executive, the Chair of the national Communications & Marketing Committee and the CES Survey Working Group for guiding the high standard of the final instrument.
This will be a bi-annual exercise to respect your time. Regional-level data will be shared in aggregate with Chapters; together striving to avoid duplication and respondent fatigue going forward.
CES will be offering a prize draw to appreciate respondents. Please promote widely!
We look forward to hearing what you have to say,
CES Executive Director
