The Grounds Management Association (GMA), one year after offering those working or volunteering in the industry a chance to shape its future membership offerings, is once again opening the door for feedback from the turf-care community with its turf-care survey.
Members and non-members are being asked for feedback on what they value and would like to see the GMA do for its members and the wider sector going forwards, by taking part in two surveys – one for individuals working across the sector and one for businesses or suppliers operating in the turf-care industry. The two surveys will be open until September 2021.
The GMA previously conducted industry research in August 2020 and is looking to build on this research whilst gathering further feedback to inform its activity over the following year, particularly with changing priorities now the national outlook looking increasingly positive as the UK continues to take its final steps out of the pandemic.
By gathering data, the GMA will look to review its existing benefits to members, as well as what it can offer the sector by looking to better understand what respondents believe to be most valuable and relevant following a year like no other. The GMA is also working on its digital offering, with its website due to be relaunched in 2022.
Geoff Webb, CEO at the GMA, explained: “A lot has changed over the 12 months, since we concluded our previous insight surveys. We know that having a professional community for networking and support can be a vital strength but crucially, we want to continue listening to our members and the turf-care community.
“We have a number of plans for the months ahead and want to ensure that our work continues to be informed by insight so, whether you’re a professional or volunteer, or represent a supplier or service, your opinion matters. Take part in our survey and help us shape a positive future.”
Respondents of the survey will have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win one of four £50 VEX gift certificates. Respondents can also choose to remain anonymous.
