On behalf of Bill Tynan, our AMSAT-NA President, please accept my sincere thanks for taking part in our recent survey conducted here on our AMSAT-NA Web site. There were 1125 of you who stopped by and did so, and I have now had a chance to look at each of your responses as well as to read each of your written comments.
KB5MU has posted the preliminary histogram results displayed here, and it appears that, with a few exceptions, most of you are pleased with what we are doing. That's gratifying. Many of you offered some very positive comments and superb suggestions for improvement. We are already doing some things to turn some of your suggestions into reality. Unfortunately, some will take a bit longer to implement, so please be patient. Your voices *were* heard and we *were* listening!
A number of you left personal notes or other requests for administrative information of me in your survey comments. Unfortunately, in order to maintain anonymity as part of the survey process, your names, callsigns and/or E-mail addresses were stripped from your written comments prior to me seeing them, so I have no way of replying directly to your requests. The largest number of these notes were requests for AMSAT membership information. Membership materials can be obtained from Martha, our corporate secretary, at the AMSAT office. Drop her a note at email@example.com along with your full name and postal address, and she'll get that information right back to you as quickly as possible.
Again, many thanks for taking the time to complete our survey. You have given us a *lot* of good "food for thought" on ways to make your organization an even better one. For that we are deeply grateful!
