Take Our 2022 Member & Volunteer Survey

Every two years, we invited our current, past, and future members and volunteers to participate in a community survey. We use your responses to help understand the needs of our community and to learn where we need to allocate more resources. Based on your feedback, we’ve launched Alpine Ambassadors, the Leadership Development Series, and our Equity & Inclusion work in the last five years. 

We've benefited from a high response rate for each survey, and we need your help to keep that up! Current members in good standing should have received a personalized invite in their inboxes from Alchemer already, but we know emails are put through the gauntlet to get to your inbox. And, all people in our community are encouraged to participate in our survey regardless of membership status. 

Take Survey

The survey will be open until 11:59pm on Sunday, February 13, 2022. We want your feedback whether you are a current, future, or past member or volunteer with The Mountaineers, part of the greater outdoor community, or just someone who just found our about us. Please take 6-12 minutes to offer your feedback. 

Past Survey Results

We started conducting membership trackers in the late 90s, and made the process formal with an org-wide survey in 2011. We followed it up with very similar surveys in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2020 to help us understand changes over time. We also launched a special Volunteer survey in 2015 with the intent of running it on alternative years to the member survey, but in the end it made the most sense to combine it, which we did for the first time in 2018.

Here's a quick historical recap of our findings:

We appreciate the thoughtful feedback shared with us during this process. We hope you are as excited about the future as we are!
