Membership Survey 2020

Getting to the Heart of What Matters – Member Survey 2020

We carried out our member survey ‘Getting to the Heart of What Matters’ in October 2020.  The aim of the survey was to understand what members really want from the IASW and how we can continue to improve and tailor our services even more to meet their needs.

An Excellent Response

The 412 (30%+) response rate was excellent and shows that members care about the IASW. A sincere thank you to everyone who participated for your time and responses!

How Members Feel and What Matters Most

This survey has given us a more accurate picture of how members feel about the IASW and what matters most. The results have provided us with detailed information about member experience, perceptions, key member benefits, communication, and a little bit about our members too.
