What questions should I ask our members?

Hi,

 

We would like to send out a Survey Monkey questionnaire to our group to ask them how we are doing and what we can do better. Does anyone have a list of questions that they have used in the past that got good results? Thanks for any help.

Hi Jerry-

We have a template in Survey Gizmo that we can share with you from the Users Group Team at SAS.  Just let us know if you want it. Email us at ugsupport@sas.com and your liaison can share it with you.

Hi Jerry,

 

I have post-conference survey questions from a number of MWSUG and PharmaSUG conferences over the past few years I could send you.  They are more oriented towards large multi-day events than local user group meetings, but you may find some useful ideas.

 

Biggest lesson I've learned from doing surveys is to keep them as short as possible while still collecting the information you need.  In my experience, you get a lot more responses that way. 

 

Send me a private message if you are interested.

Hi Jerry,

 

The Michigan SAS Users Group has also sent out a post-meeting survey after our annual 1-Day conference.  Please send me a private message, and I can send you the questions we used last year.

 

Thanks,

    Nancy

That would be great if you could send us any survey questions you have. Thank you!

Jerry - just sent you an email with links to a half dozen recent surveys. Please let me know if you don't receive it.

 

Not sure whether I should post them here publicly, but if anyone else wants them, just ask.

Hi,

 

This page is for Users Group Leaders only and it's not easily found by others.  You should feel safe to post your survey examples here.

Thanks, Patsy!

 

Here are the post-conference surveys I was able to find that are still active online:

 

PharmaSUG 2011: https://s.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22CGTZP6FKM/Preview
PharmaSUG 2012: http://s.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FSMBFRDXP/Preview

 

No guarantees about how long these links will remain active, but they are already fairly old so hopefully they'll be around awhile.
