The following, voluntary survey aims to help the AABA to assess trends in the employment and background demographics of our membership through time in order to identify areas for additional programming and to provide background for programming and grant getting. Data will be used only in aggregate form as baseline data for program assessment and/or as a snapshot of current demographics. You may participate in any part or all of this survey.
