Why do we survey members?
Every few years we conduct a membership survey in order to:
- Ensure that our work and priorities are in-line with the views and expectations of members
- Gain an understanding of changing views and opinions within the membership
We developed our 2016 membership survey in conjunction with Ipsos Mori, a leading market-research company. To ensure we asked the right questions, we:
- Interviewed council members to determine priorities
- Interviewed members in all career stages to test the questionnaire
The survey was open online from 5 July - 7 August 2016. 3,496 (19%) members across all careers stages completed the survey.
