Following on from the 2013 Club Survey, the ASA Club Development Team (Club Development Officers/ Regional Officers), in addition to wider ASA Departments, are keen to hear your views twelve months down the line.

We would encourage all clubs to complete the online survey, which provides us with an invaluable opportunity to measure data year on year, and compare this against objectives and priorities stated within the ASA Club Strategy. 

The survey provides an opportunity for clubs to inform the ASA about: activities offered, membership levels, key challenges faced (now and anticipated in the future), required areas of support, preferred methods of communication etc.  The more information you provide, the better equipped the ASA will be to support your club in the future.

We look forward to informing you of any developments/changes made as a result of your feedback over the coming year.

The survey will close on Friday 30 January 2015.
