Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba Volunteerism Survey Telling the stories of retired teachers’ volunteer activities
Dear RTAM Member,
We are conducting this survey on our members’ volunteerism in order to collect evidence of our individual and collective contributions to Manitoba society. We hope that the results of the survey will be of benefit to all our members in the following ways:
for use in working on behalf of member interests and benefits; to recognize and celebrate our contribution to our communities; and to inspire the volunteer work of others.
To conduct the survey, RTAM has hired PRA Inc., a research firm based in Winnipeg. When compiled and tabulated, the results will be reported in the media, in local community papers, in KIT, and on the RTAM website. Our plan is to share this survey instrument and to compare results with those of kindred organizations. Even if you do not volunteer, it is important to get feedback from as many of our members as possible.
We anticipate that it will take you about 10 minutes to complete this survey. All responses will be anonymous. There are two ways to complete the survey:
you can access the survey online by visiting www.rtam.mb.ca
you can complete this survey and return it by mail, fax, or email (scanned)
We are asking you to complete the survey by June 30, 2014. All those who complete and return the survey will be entered into a draw for one of four $100 VISA gift cards. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact the RTAM office at 1-888-393-8082 (toll-free) or 204-889-3660 (Winnipeg).
For the purposes of this survey, we have suggested the following definition of volunteering.
Volunteering: providing a service without pay to anyone (not living in the same household) or to the community or environment. This service is provided either directly, on one’s own, or indirectly, through a group or organization. Section 1: Demographics 1a.
