2018 PLATO Survey Results

Thank you to all the PLATO members who responded to our annual survey. Our response rate was an amazing 47%. You told us that you continue to be very satisfied with PLATO programs. PLATO relies on the voluntary effort of its members for success. The love of learning and passion of our course coordinators, program planners and volunteers, committee members, and participants must be coming through because about 85% of you rated PLATO an 8, 9 or 10 (with 10 being the highest level of satisfaction). In addition, 90% of you feel that the $60 annual membership fee is a good or great value.  

Members rated member-support activities consistently high. About 80% rated membership renewals and event registrations as good or very good. Additionally, 81% rated the weekly emails as good or very good and 75% rated the ease of navigating the website as good or very good. And thank you to those of you who shared 451 comments with us. They have all been carefully read, considered, and shared with the appropriate committees.

The results of the survey are shared through this link. (It will open as a pdf.)

It really is true that PLATO is a place where the love of learning never gets old.
