2019 GEO Member Survey is LIVE!

Your feedback helps GEO understand both our impact and how we might improve programs and services to better meet your needs.

GEO is at an important time of transformation. The search for our new CEO is currently underway, and your feedback at this time will serve as valuable onboarding for our new leader. We are also currently in the second year of our strategic plan, where we are seeking to strengthen ties between members of the GEO community, more fully integrate racial equity into our vision for smarter grantmaking and continue to deliver high-impact programs. Your feedback will help us track our progress towards these initiatives, and will position us to best serve our members and advance the field for the years to come. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.
