A&P Competitor/Exhibitor Survey
During the RAS District Councils and Executive Summits, it was agreed A&P Show competitors and Exhibitors were important stakeholders in the showing movement and our communications to them should be improved. Two practical opportunities were identified. The first is in posting news and information on the RAS website with an email alert. The second is having a direct communication tool for and with Competitors/Customers achieved through developing a Rider/Handler  communication database. This would be a regular email newsletter during the season. Follow the  link to an online survey for anyone who competes at an A&P show. This is for all competitors/exhibitors regardless of whether they shear sheep, show horses, beef or dairy cattle, or exhibit in the home industries section. The survey is short, just 13 questions and will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.Here is the link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/S3NW7XWSurvey Results Report, as at Sunday 20 April RAS Competitor / Exhibitor Survey Update #3

As of Sunday evening, there had been 714 responses to the survey.Around 43% want a newsletter and a similar number want a moderated forum as well.

That has been a consistent response from the outset.

Competitors have indicated their they expect their information to primarily come from the RAS website and their A & P Society.

The survey will close on Wednesday 30th of April. In the meantime a progress report will be presented at the District AGMs over the next couple of weeks.
