Member Emily Kaster developed, processed, and completed the first ever Membership Poll for the Maine Association of Local Emergency Managers (MALEM).
The question set mirrored the survey produced by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) in 2022, leveraging the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) methodology. The MALEM survey was facilitated through a Google Form linked in a PDF flyer advertising the project. The survey’s response period ran March 7, 2022 – March 28, 2022. Eligible respondents included students, academics, volunteers, and career emergency managers (local, county, state, private sector) in Maine.
The survey was marketed to members and non-members of the Association, with slight variances in their respective question sets.
