The ABA Wants to Hear From You!

At the ABA, we are very interested in what you think about the state of the organization, and we want to hear from YOU. Please take this short five minute survey and let us know how you feel about the ABA and your membership.

THIS SURVEY IS NOT LIMITED TO CURRENT ABA MEMBERS, though! If you are NOT currently an ABA member, either because you are a lapsed member or you've never been a member, we want your feedback too.

Participation is anonymous and confidential but if you include your name and email you will be entered into a weekly drawing to win either a free membership or to add a free year to your existing membership!

Survey responses will be used to evaluate and improve member services and develop new membership options.
