Member Survey Update
All our Members and brokers were emailed this week inviting them to participate in the Member Survey this year. The positive response we have already received to that invitation suggests the survey will draw on the full breadth of membership and help us identify those areas going well and those requiring improvement.
If you have not received a personal email from either Hugo Wynn-Williams or Christopher Brown inviting you to take part, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
. We can then ensure your email address is registered on the distribution list for the online questionnaires which are being despatched to all Members and brokers in the first week of April.
A report of the findings of this survey will be published to Members and their brokers in early June.
