Surveys: in the association industry, you likely have seen many number of surveys from membership feedback, conference evaluations, board and committee responses, and more. The Likert Scale is a useful survey format for getting responses, particularly if done properly.
Do a quick google images search for Likert Scale. You will find many examples of the scale where the "positive" responses (strongly agree, excellent, etc) are on the left side of the scale, and many others where the "negative" responses (strongly disagree, poor, etc) are on the same left side.
When designing a survey, which side should this be on? Is there a correct answer? It may not seem to matter, particularly when searching through all of the likert scales used in surveys and seeing a close to 50-50 split in this ordering. Nevertheless, research has been done to provide some feedback on this issue. Intelligentmeasurement has some results from research on this topic. You'll find their findings interesting if you do a lot of surveys. Check it out here.
One item from a recent article from Corbin Ball titled "Ten Transformative Meetings Technology Trends for 2015" jumped to our attention. "Data breaches and app hacking will likely target events in 2015". Mobile event apps have become very popular in recent years, and are now a staple at most events.
The benefits of apps are undeniable: branding, logistical planning, engagement, networking, content and marketing are some. But, with the major news items affecting Home Depot, Target and others, it is an interesting risk associated with your event. You certainly do not want the publicity and potential damage to your members and attendees.
So, partnering with a security firm and keeping your clients informed are must have's in this arena. Working proactively with your vendor is another wise decision.
