    Hi all,

    I'm doing a research project for a potential journal article and was wondering if you would be willing to help. Below is a link to a five-minute-or-less anonymous survey. If you could fill it out when you get the time I'd appreciate it!

    https://forms.gle/5XpmXqzVB9hje2fp6


    Just to clarify, this is not a survey commissioned by PTG - this is just me doing research. With that being said, for the project to be successful I'll need as many responses as possible. Please pass this along to your chapters and other technicians you know, both PTG members and non-PTG members. 

    Thank you!

    A big thank you to everyone who's participated in the survey! If you haven't yet, PLEASE take five minutes to fill it out. (If you can't get it to work, try copying-and-pasting it directly into your browser.)

    https://forms.gle/5XpmXqzVB9hje2fp6

    I'm going to leave it open until Sunday night, at which point I'll close it to new answers so I can start sorting through the data.

    Thank you!

    I've had a request to leave the survey open for a few more days so it can be presented to chapters, so I'll leave it open for another week or so to give you a chance to share it. If you haven't already participated, please take five minutes or less to fill it out!

    If you already filled it out, thank you! Please don't fill it out a second time as we don't want to pollute the data. Thanks!

    Hi, Ben,

    Try removing the requirement to state one's gender.

    Perhaps the number of returns will increase.

    Kind regards.

    I can’t change anything now that it’s published. I’ve already had a few suggestions for things that should be changed for next time, but I’m not able to implement any changes until this one is done.

    Honestly, I didn’t expect to get more than 50 replies, with this being an unofficial survey and all. So getting more than three times that number is much better than I had originally hoped.

    Just a quick update. I've gotten 267 replies so far. Thank you to everyone who's participated!

    This is your last call to join in if you haven't already - I'm going to close down the survey on Sunday night, as replies have started to taper off:

    Please only one reply per person. Thank you!
