Lawrie's PCUG Members Survey Summary

Multi-choice Questions

  • membership is valued & promoted by a significant majority
  • likely to lose ~38% is close TIP, high, but not as high as feared
  • 61% of membership is over 65, essentially no younger members
  • ~30% have used centre / courses / SIGs in mid-term, fewer currently; ~35% have never used these; ~30% may use in future
  • only 16% likely/will volunteer, need these people to get in touch
  • see very mixed opinions about the future of the group

Free-text Responses

  • many indicated they wanted to retain PCUG email/web (as we intend)
  • many suggested we embrace a wider range of platforms, esp smartphones & tablets; possibly even to point of changing name
  • mixed opinions suggesting that we need to attract younger members for the continued health of the group BUT others warned this was seen to be very problematic, even disasterous for other groups in similar circumstances
