ANSI Membership Department Reaches Out

New York, Mar 04, 2002

In an effort to better serve the needs of its members, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is conducting a short (ten-minute) telephone survey of its members to obtain their opinions regarding the association in general, and the products and services it offers.

According to Greg Fine, ANSI director of membership marketing, the Dieringer Research Group, a national market research company, will conduct the telephone survey of a randomly selected group of ANSI members during the month of March 2002. The survey is one of several projects included in the first phase of an enhanced membership recruitment and retention program launched by ANSI during 2001.

John Kalemkerian, ANSI vice president of membership, communications and education, explained, "ANSI's volunteer leadership has been very supportive of efforts to revitalize the Institute's membership programs. Additional staff and resources have been assigned to the membership team that will result in more direct and constant interface with our members and constituents. The member needs assessment survey will help to create a benchmark of information and understanding relative to what members want, expect and need from their 'ANSI experience.'"

"Our primary goal is to clearly identify the needs of ANSI's members and member prospects so that we can design programs and services that will best meet those needs," added Mr. Fine. "The assistance of ANSI's members in this survey will provide us with the opportunity to objectively assess our performance, and enable us to refine the products and services we offer to our membership. We look forward to receiving the survey results in early April."
