Member Survey

Several days ago Dean Hirtle sent everyone an email with a survey about the upcoming Guild program. The PGNS executive is going to have to make some important and difficult decisions that will effect the direction the Guild takes in the coming years. This survey is your way to to tell the executive what you like, what you don’t like, what needs to change and what needs to stay the same. Everyone has an equal voice. However, if you do not answer the survey then you will have no voice. Please answer the survey and email it back to Dean. The survey email is repeated here:
