The Institute provides an update on the headline results of its "members' preference" survey
The IEMA “preference” survey, which focused on what members want and need from their membership, closed on 4 September with a total of 1,960 responses via the online poll, which covered every level of membership, from Student to Fellow.
The survey was designed to achieve a consensus on what elements of membership individuals find most valuable, what other services they would ideally like to see introduced, how often they like to be updated, and what devices – PC, tablet, smartphone – they use.
The results will ensure the Institute can deliver appropriate, useful and valuable services that help all members to be the best that they can.
IEMA was also interested in establishing where its members are positioned on the Institute’s environmental skills map and their ambitions about moving up or across the map as they gain knowledge and experience and their skills base develops.
Headline results from the survey reveal that members are, in the main, very satisfied with the current range and provision of information, events, publications and other services that come with all levels of IEMA membership.
The Institute would like to thank all of the members who took the time to contribute to this survey. Analysis of the results is still ongoing, but a breakdown of the outcomes will be made available to members over the next few months.
