Patrick, I share your concern regarding our dues-paying membership 
decline and think a survey would be worthwhile.

I have done some surveys in the past by snail mail, but it's been a 
while. I think it's time to do another set.

See attached survey mailings.

See some survey results on page 7 of LP News: 
http://www.lp.org/wp-content/uploads/2011-4_LP_News.pdf

I found the two responses regarding the Tea Party questions to be 
especially illustrative.

I will plan to do another survey this Fall.

I'll also be asking for a budget increase at this LNC meeting to pay for 
prospecting for new donors/members to lists that have routinely been our 
best performers.
