Member Survey


The Fort Worth Metro Chapter wants to serve you better. Seriously. So we've enlisted the help of a marketing class at UT Arlington under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Rogers, senior lecturer in the Department of Marketing. The students have created a survey, which you can take anonymously, to let Chapter officers know how to make our rockin' good chapter even rockin'-er.


Please keep an eye on your email. The survey will arrive in the next few weeks. We promise it will be mostly painless.
