Good afternoon,

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

As you know, for the past two weeks, I run an ALGA News survey to get your thoughts on how we could improve the newsletter to make it more interesting for you as well as other readers.

(If you were able to complete the survey, thank you so much for that I really appreciate it!)

A really interesting idea came up in the survey that I’d like to get your view on especially if you’re from a council; here’s the link and it’ll take maximum 2 minutes: It would be great to hear what you think of it…

Overall though, it was clear through the survey that, although ALGA News is a valued source of information to our subscribers, there are areas of improvement:

  • Most subscribers overwhelmingly want to see more stories on what other councils are up to, including examples of council best practice.
  • Subscribers also want to be kept across Federal grants and funding opportunities.
  • I also received suggestions on improving the look-and-feel of the newsletter to bring it in line with the style of current news outlets.

All of this feedback is greatly appreciated and I can assure you it will be taken on board to keep improving ALGA News.

Thanks again, and have a great day.
