Member Surveys and Focus Groups

Every other year SPAAR’s Communications Committee has the fun task of reaching out to members to hear what’s working and what could be improved. Through feedback from a member survey as well as a series of focus groups, your input helps shape the direction of SPAAR’s focus year after year in order to provide the best service, programs, opportunities and resources possible.
