The Ins and Outs of Creating Surveys

The Ins and Outs of Creating Surveys

Surveys are an important tool to gather information from your community and as well as your stakeholders and staff. Join us at this webinar where we’ll review the basics of survey creation, quantitative and qualitative methods, and best practices for maximizing survey responses. Please note: This webinar will build on what was taught at "Strategic Planning: There has to be a better way" workshop on 6/17, however all are welcome to attend.
