The 2011 AFS member survey, designed to give the Executive Board timely and accurate information about AFS members, their professional status, and their perspectives on the Society's present and future activities, is now available securely online at the Survey Monkey web site.

The survey URL is, and the survey will be available until October 1.

In most cases, this year’s questions follow along the same lines as those in our other member surveys, conducted in 2002 and 2006, so we can compare information from the three sets of responses. In some instances, however, there are new questions, because the Society’s repertory of activities, and the opportunities and challenges you and we face, are different today than they were five or ten years ago. Please know that we will take your responses seriously. The time you spend on this—it should take you no more than 30 minutes, depending upon your responses—will be well spent.

Two rules to bear in mind:

1. The survey allows only one response per computer, so if there are multiple members in your household, please use different computers to submit your responses.

2. If you leave the survey before completing it, you will be able to return and finish it at a later time, but once you submit your responses you will not be able to return.

Your responses will be anonymous. If the survey raises specific questions that you want to take up with the Board, please send them to us via AFS Executive Director Tim Lloyd at Or, if you prefer, you can write your questions—and, if you wish, your name and address—at the end of the survey in the "other comments" section.

Please accept our thanks for your time and thought in completing this survey, and for your continuing support of our field and Society. We'll be reporting on your collective responses in the AFS Review.
