ASC MEMBERS REPORT SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS MADE
ON DELIVERING VALUE FROM 2010 TO 2015
All Six Measures Grow from 2010; Five of Six Reach 60% Approval Ratings
December 7, 2015 – Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council’s (ASC) 2015 Member Value Survey illustrates significant progress has been made in delivering value across the Council’s programs and services.
The ASC Member Value Survey, first conducted in March of 2010 and repeated in 2013, asks a series of questions about how effective the Council is in delivering value via programs and services. The 2015 survey benchmarks against both the 2010 and 2013 results, and clearly illustrates growth. Five of the six values have grown by double digits, and five of the six have eclipsed a 60% threshold for members reporting significant value. The rating % illustrates the number of respondents that marked “Highly Effective” or “Effective” on the survey.
Members were asked, ‘Overall, how effectively does ASC…’
Survey Note: The responses illustrated in the chart indicate the percentage of members that reported ASC was either “very effective” or “effective” when it comes to the specific value driver.
“The results of this year’s Member Value Survey illustrate how successful the ASC Board of Director’s long term path of value creation has been as these industry leaders, working side by side with committee members and staff, have spent considerable time and effort to try new things, take new directions and work hard to remain fiercely relevant to the 138 members that are part of ASC,” notes Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. “This energy and effort has allowed ASC to achieve regulatory wins, ensure new employees have technical training, market analysts have access to the latest data and our conventions remain a primary factor in keeping the industry connected. It is amazing to have 90% of respondents respond favorably to ASC’s ability to connect members via networking and relationship building. In 18 years of association management experience, I’ve never seen a 90% rating, and appreciate all of the members who have worked diligently to ensure we are creating value for our member companies.”
