									         State Council
2010 Benchmark Survey (Wave 4)
      Summary of Results

     Prepared by Glenn Lortie

          June 23, 2011
    About the Benchmark Survey
• The Benchmark Survey is a biennial (every two year) study
• It is designed to provide state leaders with information so
  they can measure their organization against their peers
• The Benchmark Survey initiative was first undertaken in
  2005 (Wave 1); It has been repeated in 2006 (Wave 2),
  2008 (Wave 3), and now in 2010 (Wave 4) with data being
  collected from December 3rd (2010) through May 5th (2011)
• For leader convenience and to facilitate processing, the
  Benchmark Survey questionnaire was “folded into” the
  Annual Report filing beginning in 2008
• This summary of results is based on input received from 50
  state leaders (for their State Council organizations)
   – It does NOT include any Local Chapter data
