Member Demographics Survey (optional)
We collect anonymous demographic information for the purpose of obtaining grants and sponsorships. In order to provide programming and to enhance membership services, these funding sources are needed. Grants and sponsorships require demographic information about our members in order for WNBA to be eligible for funding.
Answering the following questions is optional, but we’d really appreciate it if you’d take a few moments to fill out this survey. Thanks!
