Welcome to the April Edition of Impulsion

This month we're inviting all members to take Equestrian Australia's Engagement Survey. A survey of this kind was last run by EA and the States back in 2011 and the results will be used to assist in further developing services and benefits for current and prospective members. As an incentive for contributing to the survey, one person will win a prize consisting of a 38mm Silver/White Apple Watch (Sport) and an EA Membership. We encourage you to take part in this important information gathering exercise.

Until next month,

Grant Baldock, CEO, Equestrian Australia

Take the 2015 Engagement Survey

This survey is open to all current EA members, club members, past members and prospective members as well as anybody who has an interest in Australian equine sport activities!
