The UFBA sent a satisfaction survey on 21 December to registered attendees at our 2015 Annual Conference.
The objectives of the survey were to:
- Determine overall satisfaction with the Conference
- Find out how important specific aspects of the Conference are
- Identify how well delegates understood the voting process (as only 199 out of 229 eligible delegates voted at the AGM)
- Rate the content, impact and delivery of the keynote speaker and workshop presentations
- Determine satisfaction with the NZFS Forum.
- Overall, 92.4% of attendees were very satisfied/somewhat satisfied with the Conference
- The majority of attendees were very satisfied/somewhat satisfied with the aspects of the Conference
- The highest ratings were for location (89%) and registration process (87.5%)
- Attendees think the majority of the aspects of Conference are very important/somewhat important
- The most important aspects are functions/opportunities to socialise (96.6%), accommodation (93.8%) and NZFS Forum (90.3%)
- 70.7% were very satisfied/somewhat satisfied with the format of the NZFS Forum.
- 79.4% of delegates understood the voting process extremely well/very well
- 88.2% were provided with voting cards and papers by their brigade
- 33.3% were not aware voting cards and papers for their brigade were available at registration if required.
Voting by delegates at the AGM provides member brigades with the opportunity to ‘have their say’ on who represents them on the UFBA Board, as Officers and on the Technical Panel.
It is concerning 13% of delegates at the Conference did not vote and 20% do not understand the voting process well.
The UFBA is considering effective strategies that will increase member participation at the AGM.
Thank you to all who took the time to complete the survey. Your views will help us plan future conferences that meet the needs of our members.
