We need your feedback!

The Public and Non-Profit (PNP) Division is conducting a member survey as part of the Academy of Management’s five-year review process. The survey aims to capture your satisfaction, experiences, and perceptions in regard to the PNP Division. We also need to hear your ideas for improvement. The results of this survey will be used to reflect on the current state of the division, and to identify strategic goals and actions for the division’s future. Survey analysis and reflections will be included in a report submitted to the Board of Governors, and will be shared and discussed with division members. Your feedback is important! Please take this opportunity to share your thoughts about the PNP Division with us. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and it will be extremely useful to improve PNP services to its members. All responses are confidential and only grouped data will be reported. The deadline for participating in the survey is November 15, 2015.

Please check your email and complete the survey by clicking on the Start button.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
