Re: Reminder: CNSW Headquarters Member Survey - Please Complete by Monday 4 August
Hi Margarettoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The response rate to the survey is at over 10% of membership, which a satisfactory rate of return for such surveys. we have now had almost 340 responses from individuals with the Club survey also currently open.
If the members have been unable to complete on line, a paper based version was also sent with the original advice of the opening of the survey. If you know people who want to complete but have been unable to online for some reason (the tool is a very standard web based application it should have been OK for most users) you could give them a copy of the PDF attached (is meant only for printing and return by mail). We have received a number of returns by this method and all have been entered manually into the survey tool.
Alternatively if any member wishes to email the working group mail box that has been set up for this exercise they can be provided with other assistance in completion.

These are all great questions. I might leave it to the Exec to cover
these as they are not all quite within the remit of the WG.
I will say however, that we should not think that Riverstone is the only
other option to Tempe. There some significant disadvantages with
Riverstone, as there are with Tempe, and the other options being considered -
none are perfect and each comes with its difficulties.
It is important that we are not thinking that this process is a 'Tempe or
Riverstone' discussion. It is really a 'What is the best outcome for a HQ'
discussion. One option we are also considering is a HQ on the north side
of the harbour but closer to the critical mass of other croquet clubs within the
At the end of this process, CNSW and Council will have received a
considered and comprehensive piece of analysis. We just ask for patience
and understanding while we undertake this important piece of work.
