It gives me great pleasure to distribute the 2018 AJS 50th Anniversary Survey. As we move into our second half century, it is vitally important that we take the measure of the organization and engage our members, past and present, in shaping the AJS of the future. The board, the staff and our four new task forces on Professional Development, Membership Engagement, Diversity and Inclusion, and Sexual Misconduct have worked with survey experts for many months, crafting questions on a wide array of topics. They have done this because they want to hear your thoughts and ideas; even if you are no longer a member, they want to learn from your experiences -- both positive and negative. They want to work with all of you to create an intellectually vibrant, professionally relevant, diverse, inclusive, and member-oriented AJS.
Please set aside 20-25 minutes to complete the survey. And as a bonus, those who complete the survey will receive an automatically generated acknowledgement with a link to an electronic form that can be filled out to be entered in a drawing to win three prizes: a $200 Amazon gift card, a free conference registration, or two free nights at the conference hotel.
The deadline to complete the survey is September 7, 2018.
With advance thanks for your participation,
