ARNNL has commissioned a local company, Ryan Research, to conduct a telephone survey of a random sample of members throughout the province beginning Feb. 15. ARNNL last surveyed members in 2015. ARNNL values the feedback that members can offer, as insights from the data collected help to inform organizational activities. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Julie Wells, ARNNL Research & Policy Officer, at email@example.com or (709) 753-6182.
ARNNL has been notified that some members using certain e-mail addresses (e.g., Hotmail) may not be receiving our communications. Please be advised that we are working on this issue, and hope to have a solution very soon. As always, all important ARNNL updates are posted on our website.
