      Next Gen Committee Members:


      Please remember to submit your questions for ONLA’s Education Survey to jennifergray@... by end of day today!  And thank you if you have already submitted your ideas.


      If each person on our committee submits JUST ONE question, that’s a dozen more ideas that will contribute to the success of this project!

      Dear Next Gen Committee Members:


      Please see below message from Tim Clark from the Education Committee – (I was also a part of the Strategic Planning and we are very excited about the direction of ONLA!)  I told Tim I felt our committee would have some good questions to add to the member survey.  Please submit any questions you think would be beneficial to ask our members how we can better provide excellent education to Ohio ’s Nursery and Landscape Businesses.  All questions due by SEPT 1st.  Thanks for your input!


      Example survey question to members:  “What would be your suggestions for educational online webinars that the ONLA could provide and how much would you be willing to pay for that service?”






      Hello Education Committee:


      The board recently just finished a strategic planning session in which the ONLA mission statement was crystalized and it’s goals simplified.  One of the goals of the ONLA is to deliver education to its’ members.  This is exactly what we talked about during our committee meeting back in February.  Well, our ideas back then have made it into the formal strategic plan.   One of the recommendations that came from the strategic plan was to survey the members on what type of educational opportunities would interest them and the price points they would be willing to pay.  We would like to leverage this committee to help with some of the questions that would go on the member survey.  In addition, we would really like to dig a little deeper into each organization and appeal to its’ employees, not just ownership or management with regards to educational opportunities.  The idea is to partner with our fiends form OSU to supply the educational portion and ONLA would arrange for the meeting place and times etc. around the state.


      Anyway, please take a moment and send your ideas for questions for the member survey onto Jennifer Gray at jennifergray@....  We would like to survey the membership in November so your response is appreciated.


      Thanks everyone.
