Best practice

Why are you a CDAT member?

Attracting and retaining active CDAT members is vital to your team’s success. As we tailor the volunteering content for the March CDAT State Conference, understanding the experience of current CDAT members will help us provide the best possible resources to help your team find and keep members.

This 7-question survey looks to capture your challenges, your motivations, and what you take pride in as a CDAT member – and your response really makes a difference.
