This is the first Voice Annual Reader Survey in years!

Your input is vital to help the Voice maintain relevance to its diverse audience, and it is also necessary in order to show that The Voice is read and enjoyed by AU students.

At this time, we have no demographics on Voice readers. In order to ensure that the Voice continues to be funded as a priority project of the students’ union, we need to show that reader interest is high, and that The Voice is a valuable use of your students’ union fees.

And if you happen to feel that this magazine is not money well spent, tell us why!

I am hoping that every Voice reader – be they AU students, staff or faculty – will take a moment to at least fill out the first page of the survey, so that we can establish our reader numbers and demographics. I have not made any field on the survey required, so you can skip items if you like (though you have to go through to the last page in order to submit your form, and you must fill out the first page to be entered in the contest). Please feel free to be as verbose as you like – there is no such thing as too much feedback! The survey will run until November 30th.

Because there are many questions on this survey, I’ve arrange for some terrific prizes to be given to the first 12 entrants drawn from the names of all respondents.

The first two names drawn will win a fabulous Voice fleece jacket, and the next 10 will receive Voice logo mugs. These soft, thick fleece zip jackets are special Voice purchase, and they only come in the moss-green/navy combination, with a navy embroidered Voice logo. They come in roomy small, medium and large sizes. The mugs are dishwasher safe white ceramic, with the Voice logo on both sides. Sorry, Voice writers are not eligible for prizes, and only AU students may win the jackets.
