Community Survey Recruiting Ideas - Hosted by Linda Becker
At the PRI meeting on Thursday we heard some great ideas about how to improve recruiting. Here are those suggestions. If you have more, please add a comment (you will need to log in to do that). ALSO, if you want more details about a specific strategy, mention that. Either the person who generated the idea can answer, or I will get in touch with them to find out more.
Ideas collected so far:
Toward the end of the meeting Colleen from Skamania wrote in these ideas: "Just a few ideas that helped--I am also the Regional school nurse for the area so I have access to the school website as well as county website. This allowed me to e-mail many. The chief sent out the survey to the county, which really helped. I attended a winter athlete parent meeting & had parents fill out survey by hand. We also had connection to a Skamania lodge employee meeting (which is one of the biggest employers of the area). Our faith sector sent out the survey to his members as well."
Nancy Fiander from White Swan wrote: "Our faith based partners are having their folks fill out the survey during Sunday services."
Allison Johnston (Island County) wrote: "The program manager of Island County Recovery Services is going to implement the paper version at their support group meetings."
Kristi Sharpe (Clarkston) wrote earlier: "Clarkston is getting ready to send out our Community Survey's with the Public Utilities billing service on Dec. 31st. Most will receive a hard copy with the option to use Survey Monkey, and those that pay on-line, will only get the Survey Monkey option."
Carolyn Pence, Moses Lake has several strategies going: "My school district superintendent has also offered to email out the survey link to the middle school and high school parents in the Moses Lake School district." ALSO: One of my coalition members, who is the Director of our local Boys and Girls Club, has posted the survey on the B&G Club Facebook website, asking parents to take time to complete the survey regarding these important issues. And another ALSO: It is also posted on the Columbia Basin Herald’s website – first page of the “paper” – Take a Survey. I took it this morning – quick and painless."
