Results are in from the 2019 Membership Survey!

Periodically throughout the caucuses history we have come to our membership to request their assistance with checking the pulse of the caucus. To the left, we share some snapshots of the results. Currently our membership ranks are closer to 75 members, but we'll take what we can get for those responding to the survey!

If you have additional ideas you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you!
