Members SurveyThis report summarises the results of the survey of ENHR members that was conducted in the second half of 2015. 397 members (39%) responded and 327 (32%) completed the survey. The main points concerning respondents’ backgrounds and views concerning ENHR activities are summarized in the 2015-4 Newsletter.
There are three important findings to emphasise:
- the Network is about more than just conferences. Whilst these are considered to be very important, members value the contact which the Network can provide, and especially the Newsletter and information on the website, both of which are very well administered by the ENHR office;
- there are lessons to be learned – the website is widely used but had the highest rate of dissatisfaction. We need to consider how we can improve this, we’ll consult you again but please let us have any suggestions now.
- the New Housing Researchers’ Conference is valued by those who take part but we need to raise its profile and status, once again we’ll consult you but please let us have any suggestions now.
