Session 3B: Assessing and Responding to the Needs of Your Membership

Track: Chapter 

"Opening oneself up to feedback and improvement" has been an informal motto for the attitude of staff at the Children's Advocacy Centers of Illinois. Like most Chapters, the Illinois Chapter receives feedback in the form of emails, training surveys, and in other informal methods—but are there other and better sources of information to build toward program improvement? Participants will learn how the IL chapter launched a formal needs assessment survey, held focus groups, and learned how to harness the power of qualitative and qualitative data to deliver on the expectations of its statewide movement.
