Unit Presidents and All Access group conveners, your help is needed to complete the 2022 unit survey.
This data collection tool gives a snapshot of the growth and impactful work that members, local and virtual groups are engaged in throughout the year. Questions focus on membership growth, mission education, events and social action. United Women in Faith is committed to staying connected to our members individually and collectively as we continue to increase our footprint in the world.
The Deadline for reporting is September 30, 2023. There is a sample survey available where you can preview the questions. Make sure that you access the survey for South Georgia. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Please note the following: In earlier years, National Mission Institutions (NMI) were referred to as mission agencies (i.e. Open Door Community House, The Vashti Center, Wesley Community Centers).
An All Access group is one where members have joined online and might be one that is not related to a United Methodist Church.
Inspire (spiritual nurturing and fellowship), Influence (leadership & networking), Impact (service & advocacy) are paths that members can designate as their areas of interest.
