National Membership Survey

Communication is continually set as a high priority within Kin Canada. The National Board of Directors is striving to repeatedly connect with the membership to gather and share information about the goals we are determined to reach.

One of the tools developed in this effort has been a National Member Survey. The intent of the process is to be holistic for the entire Kin Canada Membership and not have a Board survey and another Operational survey. In order to be effective with any measurement you must have a baseline. The survey is to not only gather information but create actionable data.

The process has been outlined as;
a) The survey must be completed once every three years between April 1 and June 30;
b) The Linkage Committee will provide preliminary results at the June NBOD meeting with final data and analysis presented at the August NBOD meeting;
c) The NBOD will present and approve an Action Plan regarding the analysis of the survey at the November NBOD meeting; and
d) The survey results and Action Plan will be made available to all members of Kin Canada by December 31 of the year that the survey was performed.

The National Board of Directors have a survey that has been created using Survey Monkey. This can be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LGPZFBG and will be open until July 15th.

We ask that each member take just a few minutes to complete the survey.

Thank you.
Kin Canada National Board of Directors
