03 Oct TAUS 2022 Retreat Opinion Poll
TAUS held its annual 2022 retreat at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, North Carolina. A total 375 people attended the first in-person retreat since the onset of the covid-19 pandemic. A total of 55 kids aged 0-12 years also attended. This is by far the largest retreat attendance TAUS has seen since it convened its first retreat in 2007, in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. An online opinion survey was conducted using SurveyMonkey tool. The survey was deployed on August 08, 2022, and a total of 54 participants completed the 10-question survey. The response rate was only 14% of the 375 retreat adult participants. An online response rate that is representative of the population is 44% – meaning that the results below are not representative of the population (all 375 adult retreat participants). Thus, the results presented below should be used bearing in mind that they do not represent the population. One of the reasons for the low response rate was the late deployment of the survey. The best strategy for getting high response rate is to deploy the survey on the last Friday of the retreat and ask participants to respond in real time.
The 10 questions sought to understand the gender, age group of the respondents and their opinion on the location and catering services of future retreats. The survey also sought to understand the perceptions of retreat participants on time management, how the retreat affected their understanding and commitment to TAUS mission as well as the topics and highlights presented during the retreat. Additionally, the survey sought suggestions of topics for the next retreat and speakers.
