Complete your LEADINGAGE MEMBER SURVEY by July 5th to receive you Starbucks Treat! 

 

We are asking you to take 10-12 minutes out of your day to complete the survey. Doing so ensures LeadingAge receives quality data to help design meaningful advocacy efforts that meet your needs and develop relevant programs and services for members. Here are 4 ways the LeadingAge member survey can help you tell your story:

  1. Compare yourself to others in the field. 
  2. Find out national and state-level staffing data. 
  3. Reap the benefits of data-driven advocacy at the state and federal levels.
  4. Lay the groundwork for the future. 

Your input will help LeadingAge understand its members better and in turn will help LeadingAge serve its members better.
