ORURISA Members’ Survey Results
At its May 2018, Board of Directors Retreat, the Oregon-Southwest Washington Chapter of Urban-Regional Information Services Association decided to survey chapter members to better understand training needs and interests. A team of board members drafted survey questions for the board to review and finalized the survey after incorporating their comments. The survey opened August 1 and closed Aug. 27, 2018 after receiving 151 responses. The rate of response is unknown, because active membership cannot be readily determined. The chapter maintains an email list of about 1500 members, but active membership—defined as participating in chapter activities or paying chapter dues—may be significantly lower.
