3.       Results from our survey 


Q1. Suggestions 


More active participation and sharing from members x3

Eg Involve Vietnamese attendees more, they are hardly heard

Eg More communication between members in order to be able to select proper presenters in our meetings

Include private sector actors x2

Eg Have guests from the private sector to share their views get connections

Develop joint advocacy message and follow through x2

Eg Define and update on group advocacy priorities 

Limit presentations to two x2

Initiate debate on a hot topic re: Corporate online (on the mailing list)

Have a multi-stakeholders event

Preparing simple homework


Q2. How effectively has this group been working towards its stated goal. 

The average of 3.7, so I'm calling it 'adequately well with room for improvement' 

Q3. Group Priorities; the top two most prioritized were sharing and disseminating information and resources and addressing relevant topics according to members' interests. 

Q4. Organization Priorities; the top two most prioritized were enabling environment for corporate engagement and CSR practices and learning and increasing the knowledge on CSR, including certification and standards.
