Open Position:
SCA Census 2010 Committee Members and Committee Chair
there have been various pressing issues before the board and membership in the
past several months, and as the Directors and Corporate staff are committed to
obtaining as much information as to the attitudes of the membership toward
these issues, we are considering creating a "Census 2010" project
for the SCA.

Board is seeking a team of enthusiastic individuals to help the SCA to create
and implement a one year plan to get a census-level survey in the field that
would cover the major topics that confront us, including "pay for"
issues, award structure as well as quantitative, qualitative, motivational, and
behavioural demographics such as age, gender, activities & interest areas,
and reasons for joining & remaining in the SCA.

means we are attempting to reach each and every participant of the SCA be they
member or non-member.   A census-level survey will enable us to
understand our participants for purposes of marketing, recruitment, grant
writing, and planning. It will give us a good, non-anecdotal idea of whom and
what we currently are and are becoming. It will enable us to plan for the short
term and the long term.  Most importantly, it will provide information
which will lead to better solutions to the problems the SCA and its Board are
facing. Keep in mind that all the individual responses collected will be kept
confidential and not sold or shared.  All data to be collected or
published will remain completely anonymous.

A solid background in research
