Club Survey

We are working on posting this survey online, but in the meantime if you haven’t taken it, please take the time to give us your input at our October meeting. It is vital we get your feedback so we can improve how we serve our members. And if you did participate last month, thank you for your time. We’ve gotten some really good preliminary input. Some people indicated they would be willing to volunteer but did not leave contact info. Please e-mail me at president@plumislandsurfcasters.org Most of our tasks involve 1-2 hours of your time but help the board tremendously. Survey runs through the end of the year.

Please print the document above, fill it out, and bring it to a club meeting.

Thank you for taking the survey.
