Chapter Assessment Survey will launch in November
All GCSAA affiliated chapters will receive an online assessment the week of Nov. 7. The chapter assessment survey is a requirement of the affiliation agreement. This survey allows GCSAA to better understand the needs and challenges impacting all 100 chapters. The assessment will also help chapters pinpoint where they excel and areas they would like to further develop and enhance. GCSAA will use the information to focus its resources to better meet the needs of chapters and members. Contact Leann Cooper, chapter services manager, for more information.
