2019 ODC Survey Summary and Recommendations

We want to thank our members who participated with the recent LWV-ODC member survey that we conducted in January 2019.

The purpose of the survey was to help the board determine priorities and also assess members' interest in county-specific activities. The total respondents were 61, which represents approximately 25 percent of all members. 2019 Member Survey
