1. Member Survey drafted and ready for launch!
We are currently testing our most comprehensive member survey since 2005 as we seek to explore the views of our members, clubs and regions and inform the priorities and strategies for Barbershop within Australia.
The survey will be facilitated through the Survey Monkey platform and will be launched in early July 2018. The survey will be open for 6 weeks and we anticipate having the first pass of analysis ready for presentation at the Adelaide Convention membership forum.
Drawing on the latest research by Barbershop Harmony Society, this major survey has been designed to explore the member experience and aspirations for our Barbershop community; informing our clubs, regions and association in plans to ensure our ongoing sustainability.
Watch out for it and ensure you take the opportunity to have your say.
2. BHA National Council contact program.
The clubs are the foundation of our Barbershop Community, but how can the volunteer Council members keep in touch with over 30 clubs? Certainly the ability of one Membership VP to speak to each club is limited.
Whilst most councillors will try and take the opportunity to catch up with local clubs if their travels take them to a location where there are active choruses this doesn’t provide a reliable means of contact.
For this reason, the BHA National Council members have each been allocated a number of local clubs and have been tasked with establishing a contact program with the club.
So expect a call from a National Council member over the next two months to seek feedback on your club and enable challenges and opportunities that arise to be considered within the broader perspectives of Barbershop across Australia.
3. BHA Medal and CMOTY reminder
