Feedback from our Membership

We took some time to request feedback from our membership, and we hear you  loud and clear! Here are the results: 

• 80% of respondents would recommend MSO to their friends which is up vs. last year
• Majority of people felt slight to little involvement in our activities
• Majority of people would like to feel very involved

From these results we have gathered that membership engagement is important to you. We are going to work on more calls to action for members to get involved with our activities. So if you are interested in those opportunities, read on!
