Every few years, we ask our readers for their advice about this magazine through a survey. The Queen’s Alumni Review readership survey helps us measure the effectiveness of the magazine as a communications tool and gauge the impact of magazine improvements over time. It also provides you with the opportunity to give me information on what you read – and don’t read – in the magazine; whether you find the Review credible and well-designed; what kinds of stories you think are missing; and how you prefer to receive information about Queen’s.

I will be sending out our 2019 readership survey by email on June 10. Reminder emails will go out on June 20 and 27, as the greater the number of responses we get, the more accurate our results will be. But don’t worry: I won’t bombard you with emails. If you complete the survey in the first 10 days, or if you opt out from receiving further emails from the magazine, you won’t get any new notifications. The last time we did a readership survey was in 2015. And we’ve improved a few things since then.We have fewer open-ended questions and have eliminated superfluous questions. The entire survey should take you about 15 minutes. You can complete the survey on your phone or computer. And if you don’t complete it in one sitting, you can pick up where you left off earlier by using the individual link you are sent by email. And as an added incentive, we’ll draw one email address from all of the completed survey responses to receive a fabulous Kingston getaway package for two, courtesy of Visit Kingston and Delta Hotels by Marriott Kingston Waterfront.

If you don’t get the survey email on June 10, it may be because we don’t have a current email address for you or because you have previously opted out of receiving surveys. (Or the email could have been relegated to your “clutter” folder.) Not to worry: if you want to participate, just email me directly at review@queensu.ca during the month of June, and I’ll send you your link to the survey.

Thank you so much for helping us to make your Queen’s magazine better and better.
