During the Sprint 2010 Annual Meeting, the Michigan Beekeepers Association (MBA) conducted a membership survey in order to get a better understanding of its members, their attitudes towards the MBA web site and the MBA newsletter. This was the first survey of its kind (in recent memory). The MBA leadership wishes to thank all those who took the time to complete the survey form. Member opinions are important and will help guide MBA in its future endeavors.
There were approximately 355 surveys handed out and 107 were returned, for a return rate of just over 30%. This is a very high response for surveys of this kind – which goes to show the interest MBA members have in their organization.
The survey results are being posted on the MBA web site so that all members can share. In order to be more manageable, the raw data and discussions are posted separately. We invite you to click on the following links to explore the survey and its results.
