The Society for the
Study of Social Issues



SPSSI is embarking on a new three-year strategic plan and we need your help!

We recognize the value in and responsibility for creating a meaningful plan that will guide us to be the foremost resource for our members.  It is important that we integrate past progress, stakeholder feedback, and our shared values into this process.  We ask that you take the time to complete the below linked survey.  

If you are a general member of SPSSI, the survey should take you 10-15 minutes to complete.

If you are a Committee Member or Council Member, it will take you 15-20 minutes to complete.

If you are a former member or non-member of SPSSI, the time to take you to complete the survey will be less than 5 minutes. 

We realize in any case that this is an ask, but your feedback is critical and important to us!  Your responses will provide information on the interests and motivations of our Society members, and will allow leadership to hear your voice as we consider how SPSSI can best serve its members.  

Please complete the survey by Friday, January 26, 2018.  Please note that you must complete the survey in one sitting, or your responses will not be saved.  Your replies will remain anonymous.

At the end of the survey, you will be given the opportunity to enter a drawing in which five (5) survey respondents will be randomly selected to receive a free one-year extension on their SPSSI membership dues.

We thank you in advance and look forward to what 2018 and beyond brings to SPSSI’s future!
