2013 Summer Survey Results

At the start of this summer we ran a survey of our membership. Our focus was on the role and experience of women in our leagues. We also asked what you thought about captaining, parity, league cost, and fun. The results are shown below:

Thank you for participating! We want our priorities as an organization to reflect the values of our members. This is an important part of that process.

The women’s development committee will be giving the steering committee analysis and recommendations based on the survey answers but we wanted to show them to the membership first without comment or “spin.”

General Demographics
We had 183 people answer the survey. No answers were culled, but not all respondents answered all questions.
