Member Engagement Survey
We've received more than 330 responses to our member engagement survey thus far (1.5 weeks in - WOO). ALL members are encouraged to complete the survey! It would be amazing to get 1,000 responses by the end of the month.

Emails asking for your feedback were sent on Monday, Oct. 11, and the message contains a link unique to you. These emails were sent to the email associated with your OPAportal profile via SurveyMonkey. Make sure to check your spam/junk folder!

If you did not receive an email but would love to provide feedback let us know, and we will offer an opportunity to complete the survey.
