University Archives contains many UMRA documents.  One of the earliest was created with one of the  most common tools of the trade of the early 1980's. The 22 page, typewritten (remember those?) pdf document is titled: "PDF icon umra_history_1976-1983_by_e_gerald.pdf." It is very interesting reading.  Read online or download a copy.

Volunteer needed to help with surveys of membership interests and ideas

Do you have any experience with either Survey Monkey or Qualtrics software for doing surveys? The Workshop Committee needs your help to assist with an upcoming survey.

In 2012–13, UMRA conducted several surveys of members to discover member preferences for workshop options and to find ideas for interesting member activities. From those surveys, we recruited several workshop speakers and received some really good ideas for planning UMRA activities.

The Workshop Committee will be looking for this type of information again this coming year. If you can help, please contact Ron Anderson. You will be instrumental in making UMRA’s excellent programming even better. Thank you.

—Ronald E. Anderson, rea@umn.edu, or 612-963-6660.
