1. Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to complete the following questionnaire.  In 2019 the Borders Area holds the Presidency of RHASS and I have been asked to be President for that year.  I would welcome your assistance in finding ways in which everyone with an interest in Scotland's farming, food production and rural life could be encouraged to become more involved and how RHASS might better achieve its aims.  

To that end, we would be grateful if you could take the time to complete the following questionnaire so that we can find out what you know about the benefits of being a member of RHASS and how these benefits might be improved to encourage you to become a member.  You can skip any question you don't want to answer and the questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

Lowland Market Research, an independent market research company, has been commissioned to analyse and report on the results. Lowland Market Research work to guidelines set out by the Market Research Society. All data collected will be treated as strictly confidential. No details will be passed on to any third party organisations.  

As a thank you for taking the time to complete the questionnaire, everyone who responds and provides their contact details will be entered into a prize draw for a hamper of Borders produce.

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Jeremy Quinn by telephone on 01360 311125 or by email  at info@lowland-research.co.uk.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Lord Lothian
RHASS President 2018/19
