The Florida Chamber is in need of your support with distributing our recent Small Business Index Survey to your membership. The purpose of this survey is to obtain the most accurate information about the business climate in Florida with efforts to wrap up the 2012 Legislative Session and plan for the 2012 Election Cycle.
Over the last year, the state of Florida created more jobs than all but two other states. We would like to take this time to receive feedback from the businesses of Florida, and we need your help!
This survey allows you the flexibility to add specific questions that you would like to survey your membership on, as well as rebrand the survey with your chamber's logo or header. Please help us increase our response rate to this survey by distributing it to your membership database with any additional questions you feel are necessary. The deadline to respond to the online survey is Friday, March 23rd. All results will be shared and available for your use by the end of March. You will be able to access those results through your Chamber Views webpage that is available to all local chambers.
Our Chamber Views survey system allows you to do three things:
1) Use our existing survey to ask your membership about key issues facing their business
2) Add questions to the existing survey that relate to issues your Chamber may be facing locally
3) Brand the survey using your ChamberÂ’s heading so that your membership know the survey is coming from their local chamber
If you are interested in surveying your membership using Chamber Views, please log on to the website (www.Chamberviews.com) and enter your username and password. You can distribute the survey to your database or post the link to your website. After you have signed in, you should be able to view our survey under the "global surveys" header. Please upload the most recent survey into your account.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at
or call me at 850-521-1243.
Your answers to our surveys over the past year indicated that the tax burden was one obstacle facing your business. During the 2012 legislative session, the Florida Chamber worked with Governor Rick Scott and legislative leaders to lessen that burden.
In our effort to Secure FloridaÂ’s Future, it is critical that we know what issues are most important to you and your member businesses! Your membersÂ’ personal information will not be shared. We will also provide you with the results of the survey and any policies that come from the results of the survey. Our message is more powerful in Tallahassee when you voice your opinion.
Please take five minutes to complete this 15 question Small Business Index Survey and provide feedback on what you believe are the important issues facing small businesses. Also, we would appreciate it if you took a few more minutes to pass this survey along to your membership.
Thank you for your help and support of the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Florida's small businesses!
