SOUP Member Survey
In an effort to make sure the SOUP experience is as enjoyable as possible to a wide variety of Ukulele Players we ask that you take a few minutes to fill out our first ever survey to help us determine how best to direct the energies of all those involved.
Please try not to omit or skip any questions and check off as many answers for each question as you think apply.
We are hoping to get some honest feedback about how we are doing.

We have seen some exciting growth with our local group over the last couple of years. As the ukulele has become more and more popular we want to try to make sure we structure our jam sessions and special events to reflect our membership. In this section include any ideas you have about
attracting new members because our policy is everyone is welcome, the more the merrier.
I would like to make sure I am on the mailing list for S.O.U.P. updates, write your email below. This is not a mandatory field to be filled out
