Camps Example Community Survey

From Week #3 of the 8-Week Planning Guide Resources, this example community survey is to be used at the early part of your planning to help recruit other volunteers, speakers, ideas and more.

Use surveymonkey.com or another free survey tool to easily create and distribute a survey for your community. The goal is to gather feedback, ideas, and information while promoting the event. Be sure to include an introduction that explains the Camp, any details you already have (date, venue, etc.) and how people can get involved (including registration link!). The questions below are examples; you can use any questions you like and you can provide a set of answers to choose from or the option to just include text boxes for free response.

The Netsquared London group has been gathering each month since November 2008 to share, learn and collaborate. Over the last year and a half events have focused on various different tools and strategies for leveraging technology in social benefit work. Members of group represent charities and community organizations, local and national government, businesses and start-ups, designers and programmers, innovators and changemakers. We are excited to be participating in a new pilot from NetSquared that will let us bring even more people together to do even more.
