Help Us to Better Understand Your Administrative Needs

Volunteer and Community Resources (“VCR”) is exploring the feasibility of providing an administrative services hub for not for profits on Salt Spring. In the Spring of 2016, VCR surveyed organizations regarding the services and resources offered by VCR and how well they were meeting needs. Participants identified areas of support where they could see themselves requiring assistance. The study will further explore these areas of needs and what possible service delivery methods could look like to meet those needs.

The survey will take 10-15 minutes of your time to complete. If you are involved with more than one organization, please complete the survey once for each organization. The survey will be online till May 15th, 2017. Thank you for your cooperation and helpfulness in taking the time to participate.
