Where we work

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Folks who lead community level membership associations. Their leadership role is typically voluntary and done outside of their "day job". We are indifferent to the type of organization they lead, only that their organization gather around a common interest or practice. We welcome everyone to attend, even if they're not an association leader.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Focus groups or interviews (by phone or in person),

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    For 2022, our curriculum will have a stronger focus on executive leadership--how do the "C-suite" leaders of a membership association build teams, create a leadership pipeline, motivate others, etc. Previously, we primarily focused on subordinate leadership roles and functions.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board, Our funders, Our community partners,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    We're a pretty small organization with a fairly small footprint. Our constituents have a purely voluntary relationship with us--we serve an important but admittedly not a health and well-being purpose. Some of the people we serve leverage opportunities for feedback, direct contact with staff and board, and in some cases have joined our board. There's always room for improvement in how well we engage, and how we jointly respond and/or anticipate with our customers!

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We look for patterns in feedback based on people’s interactions with us (e.g., site, frequency of service, etc.), We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback,

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    It is difficult to get the people we serve to respond to requests for feedback, Staff find it hard to prioritize feedback collection and review due to lack of time,
