Have Your Say
Do you agree with what those members who have already completed the survey think are the most important issues facing today’s Internet? Do you share other members’ views on the best format for chapter events?
The survey will be open until the end of August so you still have time to tell us what you think your chapter should be focusing on. Chapter members should look out for the link to the survey in their inbox. Eligible members will be entered into a prize draw to win a $50 VISA gift card.
