Latest News... ANNOUNCING A NEW FORUM - SATURDAY SESSION 1.15PM - 2PM
Surveys Surveys and Surveys
9F - A Forum Discussing Recent Survey Findings - Presented by Glenn Vallender with Terry O'Connor (MTNZ Vice President).
Don't you love them? Although only one tool, surveys are necessary for gathering useful information for planning, programming, enhancing, funding and growth. Community theatre is an integral part of the cultural fabric of society. Without being informed with reliable evidence, individual Societies and MTNZ as a whole would stagnate and entrench. Surveys offer the opportunity for you and your MTNZ Executive to make sensible decisions based on evidence. Your honest and reliable input is what provides this information. As the old adage says, if you put garbage in you get garbage out.
Your MTNZ Executive have taken a bold initiative and developed an online survey designed to make it easier for you to input information about the productions your society has presented to the public. A key aim is to use this information to not only gain sponsorship and funding but also to develop new programmes and initiatives that address the collective information that you have provided. In the end this information is for you and your Society.
Come along to a seminar and learn about the findings of this year's survey of productions that 63 Societies have presented. You will be fascinated.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend this forum. Terry will be doing an overview at the AGM of the production survey results - but for a more in-depth look - come along.
