Got this in a email from GLFWDA, figured I'd pass it along:
From the DNR: The Department of Natural Resources (Department) is committed to understanding our partnersí impressions of the Department. As we strategically plan for our future and the future of our natural resources, we would like your help.
We would like to know your membershipís opinions about the Departmentís strengths and weaknesses and the threats and opportunities that face the Department and natural resource management over the next five years. We are also want to know more about how our partners are involved in natural resource management and outdoor recreation. We are using a variety of tools to collect this information including focus groups, phone interviews, a statewide citizen survey, Department employee survey and this survey of partners. I am asking that you electronically send out the survey to your members, which can be found at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/DNRstrategicplan
. It is important to note that the completed survey will not be sent back through your organization but will be available to the Department for analysis. The Department will not have access to who filled out the survey or their email address. Please feel free to forward this entire note to your membership. We are asking that the survey be completed by March 30, 2012.
The information collected from all of these sources will be compiled, analyzed and provided to the Departmentís Management Team to assist in the strategic planning process. The strategic plan will be completed by August 2012, and copies of the plan will be provided to your organization.
I greatly appreciate your help in ensuring that the Department has a comprehensive awareness of our citizensí and our partnersí thoughts about the Department and the future of natural resource management and outdoor recreation.
