UGSS – User Group Member Survey

From the User Group Support Services (by Graham Watson, UGSS Community Manager)

Microsoft needs to properly understand your needs as user group leaders or members so that we can support the technical community to the best of our ability. To help us do this, I’m requesting that you complete the survey you will find at http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22BSJ28JHPT/. I’m also requesting that you ask your members to complete the same survey. The survey is only open until the end of February and is extremely important to us – not only does it tell us how we are doing and what we should be focusing on, it also helps us to justify the costs of the UGSS program including the funding we provide directly to the community. Once the survey is closed and we have had time to process the results, we will post the findings on UGSS for the community to review.

TechNet Professional (NFR) subscription sweepstake for user group members.

You do NOT need to register on UGSS to complete the survey, either as a leader or member. You only need to be registered if you want to be eligible for the TechNet subscriptions.

Members get a much shorter version of the survey than leaders do, 10 questions instead of 31.

You have an opportunity to obtain a TechNet Professional (NFR) subscription at no cost even if you are not a user group leader but are a user group member registered on www.usergroupsupportservices.com. When you complete the survey, you will be able to enter a sweepstake for one of fifty subscriptions, subject to the rules you can find at https://www.technicalcommunity.com/InfoCenter/Pages/1HFY11SurveyTerms.aspx.

Please note – your survey answers do NOT affect your eligibility for a subscription if you are a user group leader or your chances of winning a subscription in the sweepstake if you are a member. Please give us your honest and candid opinions!

Many Thanks!
