The Dal-Worth club recently held a membership meeting where it was determined that more feedback was needed from members regarding shows, volunteering, and awards. A survey was created to solicit this feedback from both members and non-members (who are considered potential members.) Your participation in this brief survey will help the Dal-Worth board and club officers better understand your needs and concerns. We want our members to have a strong, clear voice in how the club is run and the directions we hope to take in the future. We will take your responses very seriously and post the results at the completion of the survey.
This survey has been designed to provide anonymous answers. It is intended to be a platform for honest and constructive feedback, and is not to be used as criticism towards individuals. The survey will be open through Sunday, February 12th. Thank you in advance for your participation and happy surveying! Please share!
Information regarding 2017 AYA contests and scholarships can now be found on the youth page.
