Identify Growth Opportunities with Customized Member Surveys

As you make plans for 2013, it’s an ideal time for a CUNA member survey.

These customizable surveys allow you to identify areas within your credit union that are excelling, as well as the areas that could use improvement.

A CUNA member survey can help determine:

  • New services to add;
  • Advantages over competitors; and
  • Ways to build stronger member loyalty and attract more members.

Gather this essential member information to get the results you need without breaking your budget. You can choose the format and size of your survey.

Now is the time to conduct semi-customized or customized member surveys.
