Whether you're an RYA member or non-member; young or old; novice or
seasoned pro. If you're a marina manager, club commodore or training
centre principle. Motor or yacht cruiser, sail racer, windsurfing, jet
skier, inland boater or powerboat racer, whatever your preference we
want to know what you think of the RYA so we are asking you to take part
in our survey.
So far some 2,000 people have already shared
with us their views and ideas and we would love to hear from even more
of you. The more people who take part the more we can look at what the
RYA provides its members and the boating community at large, helping us
provide an improved customer service, enhance our membership benefits
making them better suited to members needs and make the RYA more
relevant to boaters.
The survey is available online at
www.surveymonkey.com/s/rya11 until the 31st January 2012. All you have
to do is follow the link and answer the questions; and it shouldn't take
more than five minutes to complete.
You'll be asked to answer a series of questions about RYA membership,
lifestyle and boating preferences, including why did you join the RYA
and what benefits do you take advantage of; what kind of boating do you
do and how often do you go boating?
Anyone can do it
"Whether you are an existing member, have
lapsed your membership or perhaps your club is affiliated to the RYA but
you aren't a personal member we want to hear your views. We would
really like to hear from our younger members too so why not log on and
complete the survey.
"Last time we ran the survey we had some
5,000 responses. It would be great if we could top that this time round
and get 10,000 responses. This way we would get a real insight into the
preferences of boaters in order to hopefully better meet your needs",
commented the RYA's Membership Development Manager Conor Swift.
taking part in the survey you could also be the lucky winner of an
Apple iPad 2; our way of saying thank you for taking part. There will be
two up for grabs, so simply go online and complete the survey and you
could win, it's that easy.
Why not get the whole family to complete the questionnaire and you could increase your chances of winning an Ipad2!
We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
