The 2010 data collected from this year’s Regional Association Characteristics Survey is now available for members! For the first time this report includes data analysis and comparison between 2010 data and data collected in previous years. The Regional Association Characteristics Survey is an annual benchmarking tool for the regional association network on topics like membership, finances, programming, services, and governance.
We’d like to thank the 32 regional associations who updated their information to include 2010 data. This is a comprehensive and time intensive survey to complete and we appreciate the time and effort it takes to provide this information each year.
The Forum and the Council on Foundations are also excited to provide the first ever brief on the organizational and management trends of Affinity Groups and Regional Associations, available at the link above. The study uses data from both the 2010 Affinity Group Management Survey and the 2010 Regional Association Characteristics Survey to compare the similarities and differences of operations and organizational trends among these two very distinct groups of organizations. The Council has also provided access to the Summary Report for the 2010 Affinity Group Management Survey.
