Survey

We have set up a survey on Survey Monkey. The goal of this survey is to research the interests and expectations of FRBGM members who would like to participate in the new group. By completing this survey we will be able to gauge Friends’ interest in photography and what activities and events they would like the group to put organise. You can complete this survey anonymously or offer your email details to be part of the group email mailing. We are especially interested in anyone who would like to join the committee to help us put the survey answers into action!

The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BD6TN9C
