304 submissions were received from a total of 213 members, which is almost an identical participation rate from the last time we did this. Up to three suggestions were solicited per response – just less than half of submissions included at least two, and one-quarter included three. About one-third of the respondents indicated that they would be willing to be contacted in regards to their submissions, which means we have access to even more detail, if needed.
Each submission was assigned a short topic heading based on the main point being made. Then, related and compatible categories were combined – the top two suggestions are good examples of this.
Here are the results ranked by frequency.
|Stage management issues||32|
|ACTRA (partnership with)||18|
|Member Engagement and Involvement||13|
|Visioning for the future||4|
|Safety at work||2|
|Promotion of the Artist||2|
|Benefits and Fundraisers||1|
General comments were also requested at the end of the survey, and we received 49 of these.
Council will be reviewing the overall patterns in these results as a priority item and making a determination on which topics to target over the course of the term. Members can also expect to see some committees formed early in the new year to tackle major issues.
As always, we welcome your comment and feedback. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Katey Wright, Second Vice-president at email@example.com, or either of us through the national office.
