Neil Angus, our Vice Chair, summarized the findings as follows. Thanks Neil!
2014 Chapter Survey – 2014 Action Plan
Feedback and Input from you our members on existing programs, offerings and advocacy – what is working and what is not or needs improvement.
What direction should we be going in the future – what you, our members, would like to see – educational programming, advocacy, communications, networking.
Great response rate – over 140 responses (thank you!!)
We're still analyzing details, but here’s a few highlights of preliminary findings:
Main Reason for Joining: Networking, support the Chapter mission and learn more about green buildings and communities.
Great feedback on events we currently put on and level of interest for new events we are considering – even some great recommendations on how we might improve our current offerings
Huge interest in: Net Zero and Positive energy building.
Lots of interest in higher level training in NC and interest in EB and ND
Wanted: new programming on energy management, green products and LEED vs other sustainability rating systems
Great feedback on the timing, duration and delivery methods of our programming. People wanted to see programs on climate change, building resiliency & affordable green buildings for everyone!
Excellent feedback on our existing communications tools (the website, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook) and suggestions for improvements to those tools.
Many respondents are LEED APs or GAs and are interested in GBCI continuing education credits – we are working on improving our programming offerings to include more GBCI approved programs so stay tuned!
Thanks again for all your feedback – it truly will help us provide more value to you and further our mission of green buildings and communities for all!
