The future of the Society should be built on the desires, needs and ambitions of the members. We are therefore canvassing the opinions of current, past and prospective future members to make sure we ground the strategic plan, and use the insight from members to design new initiatives and services that they will value.
We will run some webinars to capture more qualitative comments and also hope to run at least one focus group to discuss in-depth views and reactions to the current and future possible services that the SPS can offer.
Finally, all the Fellows of SPS have been asked for their input and suggestions.
Fieldwork will be broadly completed by Christmas, to allow the Trustees and the EDG to incorporate the findings from the research into the strategic plan. A major element of this will be the definition of a new set of value propositions for members.
The results from this phase of research will be shared with the members at the EGM on 4 February 2013.
