    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.)

    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!

    165 and counting so far. I was originally hoping to get at least 100 replies but have now upped that goal to at least 200.

    Wow, 165 is a fantastic response!

    When you tabulate the results, I hope you can post them here.

    Benjamin,
    Great work on this survey! Gina shared with our zone also, so you should hopefully get lots of relevant data to crunch. All the best with the project!

    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!

    Your survey looks shorter, but very similar to the the national survey that PTG used to send out. If you haven't already you might want to contact Kathy Maxwell to see if she can email it out to everyone so that techs that don't frequent this user group can participate.
