Dear All

I trust that your preparations for the summer growing season are on track and I hope the season ahead will be a good one for you.

As promised, you will find below the results of the survey. We had 111 respondents in total and Exco is very happy with the strong response rate. Thank you to everyone that completed the survey. I know some of you experienced technical difficulties in accessing the survey – thank you for persevering. In future we will make a link to a survey site available, as well as posting a Word document of the survey on the website that can be forwarded to us for manual inclusion in the survey results.

Ensuring that we are moving TAASA in a direction that will serve member needs is very important to the executive team. Hence a survey of this nature is an important guidance tool for us. Based on the results of the survey, we will review our tactics and strategies in order to address the issues raised in the survey.

TAASA is here to serve member needs. However, we can only achieve results through the resources we have available, so give some thought to paying your annual subs!

Regards

Frans
