Member Survey Deadline Extended
to June 15
If you haven’t sent or faxed in the one-page REAP annual
follow-up survey, please send it in now! It is
especially important to hear from members and clients we
have served the past year.
The survey was an insert in last month’s REAP
newsletter. A reply envelope was included for your
convenience. We requested the survey be returned by May
15 (just so you wouldn’t wait and forget).
We still have time and need to have a good bunch
returned, so please get yours in. Give your area REAP
Business Specialist a call if you have any questions.
