The strategic planning surveys are here
The Navy Supply Corps Foundation is in the process of updating the organization’s strategic plan with a series of membership surveys. Using a bottom up approach, we have targeted surveys to members, to chapter leaderships, and to spouses and significant others. They are easy to complete and should take no more than five to ten minutes. We expect to continue to collect survey responses through mid-December. Members who prefer to respond using a paper copy of the survey can receive one by contacting the Foundation office at 706-354-4111.  Please choose the survey that fits your profile.

Survey for Members (anyone who has worn the Oakleaf)

Survey for Spouses/Partners              
Survey for Chapter Presidents          

The more input we receive the better the Foundation will be able to position itself to serve our community and our families. We hope to look beyond our traditional scope and resources to address not only what we are doing now, but also identify those areas, perhaps unknown today, where we can be of the most service to our members in the future.

We appreciate your participation.
