GLUG Survey results and actions
We had 30 responses to the May 2016 GLUG survey which is brilliant given the size of the club. It shows a real commitment from the membership to keep GLUG active. As members of the committee we wanted to get your views to help us understand how you feel about the club and how we could improve it.
Below is a summary of the survey responses and the action we will take as a result of those responses.
GLUG is a club run purely by volunteers, the input and support of club members is crucial to GLUG's continuing success. We really welcome anybody joining in and helping out, coming up with ideas or organising a dive or activity. Just email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you.
The committee members work hard to try to keep the club vibrant but please remember there are only 5 of us! We also welcome help from non members, particularly in organising events, trips and finding alternative locations.
