Your vote is your voice

Member Communications Survey

The AFT Washington executive board is interested in what types of communications are most effective in reaching members. It appears that we are not reaching everyone and often hear that members have not seen certain communications. To this end, the board developed a survey to find out what your preferences are in terms of e-mail, social media, print, etc. We would appreciate it if you would please take a couple of minutes to answer this short on-line survey so we are able to be efficient and effective in our communications to you. Thank you!
