About these reports

To write these reports, we surveyed the current staff and volunteers, and the retired staff and volunteers, interviewed the chairs, and conducted follow-up interviews with any staff and volunteers (current or retired) who wished to speak with us further.

Everything in the reports is based on the data we collected. The responses we collected were synthesized into these reports, which summarize the strengths and challenges that staff and volunteers (both current and retired) noted in their responses, and makes recommendations for change based on their suggestions. More information about our process is included in the reports themselves.

Before coming to you, the reports have been reviewed by the respective committee chairs and the Board, and copyedited by the Communications Committee. The purpose of this was to correct any factual errors we might have made and to solicit feedback before the wider release. No data collected from any surveys or interviews were changed or removed from the report as a result of these reviews.

Feedback

We hope that you find the reports interesting, and very much welcome your feedback! If you have any questions or wish to contact the committee, get in touch with us through our contact form.

Please note that these reports incorporate internal stakeholders only, so while public comments on this post will be read and discussed (and possibly taken into account for future reports, as well as the next round of strategic planning), external stakeholder opinion will not be incorporated into future revisions of these reports.

All contact we receive is kept to a high standard of confidentiality, and we’d be happy to discuss that with you if you have any concerns.

Upcoming reports

Over the next several months, we will continue to survey committees and release reports. The next scheduled report will be on the Support Committee. Ultimately, we will release a final report that synthesizes all of the data we received across the entire organization.
