Feedback and constructive criticism can be great tools for planning and managing any sort of endeavor. Gauging the interests, concerns, and opinions of our group can help us make better decision on how to spend time and money as well as working with each other and the community. Last month we asked our members to take a survey and share their thoughts with us. Why do people come to Milwaukee Makerspace? What do they do here? What would they like to see more of? What can we do better? 44 members responded (or about 39% of the total group) and after spending some time slaving over spreadsheets, we published the results.
Two of the biggest questions we asked survey-takers were: 1) What do you come to Milwaukee Makerspace for? and 2) What is important to you? The following results can be found in our 19 page report, available for download here: http://wiki.milwaukeemakerspace.org/_media/2013_annual_mms_member_survey.pdf
