Please feel free to cross post. The deadline to respond to this SCA wide request is December 1, 2010.
The SCA is us, you and me doing what we do. But who are we, what
do we do, and how can we support each other to make the SCA the type
of organization we can be proud of?
The SCA 2010 Census committee has been asked by the Board of
Directors to develop a census-level survey that will help us to
address key issues facing the SCA. These issues affect our everyday
experience in the SCA; from "pay for participation" issues and award
structures to quantitative, qualitative, motivational, and behavioral
demographics such as age, gender, activities and interest areas, and
reasons for joining, remaining in, and leaving the SCA.
Because this is a "census-level" survey, we are attempting to reach
each and every SCA participant, regardless of whether or not they are
paid members or are currently active. Everyone's voice is important
to the success of this project.
This information will help us, as an organization, move forward into
the next decade, to identify, address and work on current issues and
gain a better, deeper understanding into what makes the SCA what it
is today. Your responses to these questions will also help us create
a plan for making the
SCA better organization in the future. The only way we can understand
what is important is by hearing from you.
The survey is completely anonymous, you will never be asked for
information that will identify you.
The SCA 2010 Census Survey is available here:
The Survey will remain open until December 1st. Once the data
collection is completed, the results of this survey will be made
available on the SCA 2010 Census website. All data that is collected
or published will remain completely anonymous and will not be sold or
shared beyond this survey's
If you would like to learn more about the SCA 2010 Census, if you
have questions or ideas about the project, please contact the
committee at scacensus2010@ sca.org [OMIT SPACES]
Please take the time to fill out the survey. The voices of each and
every participant in the SCA whether you are currently active or not,
will help us to better understand the SCA and enable us to grow and
flourish as an organization.
