Hey Mark! (and everyone else!!)

No, you haven't missed the survey.  It's about ready to go out.  I've been trying to tighten it up.  Lots of advise from everyone and their cousin on what to leave in and what to leave out.  Probably too much advise/cacophony. 

Basically, I have tried to be fairly comprehensive in the questions.  Many questions ask for a written response, rather than some kind of yes/no or gradation answer.  My thought was that I would get a more accurate idea of member and non-member ideas and reactions that way.  I can categorize answers and still have specific responses to help us chart the course of the Puppeteers of America.

I also believe that including everything in one survey would be better than breaking it up into innumerable surveys.  That way there will be a "flow" to responses and people will have the various issues in mind as they response (or vent, as the case may be).

The survey will be included in the body of an email, so no attachments to open.  Response will simply be a "Reply". The survey has about 60 questions.  Long, but the few people who have taken a trial run at it say it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to fill out.  Not very long when you figure how long we all spend doing everything else during our days.  Plus, this will benefit the puppet community, the Art, and Puppeteers of America.

I am setting up the response email box and a method for people who are not on the Puppeteers of America member email list to have access for their response, too.

I guess August was optimistic on my part, but the survey will be out before the end of September.  I'll post here, too, so anyone interested, even if not PoA members, can participate.
