"In the fall of 2013 you and Clubwise conducted my fourth membership satisfaction survey at my third different Club, and I’ll repeat what I’ve said each and every time: the information obtained is invaluable! Whether operations are rocky or humming along without a hitch, a membership satisfaction survey, and particularly your Consultant’s Analysis, is the ultimate “pulse-taking” mechanism for the private club industry. Also high marks on your presentation to the membership at the Annual Meeting; as you like to say, it’s just as important to tell the members what they said as it is to ask them for their opinion in the first place. Looking forward to a follow-up survey in 3 years." Pat Joyce, CCM, General Manager - Country Club of Jackson

We had completed a survey some years ago addressing facilities for a capital improvement program. With those improvements having been made it was time to get information from our members on how the staff can make ongoing improvement, resulting in our ultimate mission of providing member satisfaction.
We will follow this survey with and annual survey to tell us how we are doing. Jerry McCoy did a great job taking us through this process.
