Unto the Good Gentles reading this missive, come hearty greetings and wishes of good health, a full larder, and much prosperity!
My name is Jeff Diaz, known within the Society as Herr Gotfrid von Schwaben, and I am a graduate student at Central Michigan University. As my final project, I am conducting a feasibility study examining the opening of a pottery merchant company within the SCA.
Because you are Gentles contributing within the Society, I invite you to participate in this research study and ask you to complete the attached survey. Please click the following link http://goo.gl/forms/8i4nHM6cPS to access the web-based survey.
The following questionnaire will require approximately five to ten minutes to complete. There is no compensation for responding nor is there any known risk. In order to ensure that all information will remain confidential, please do not include your name. Copies of the project will be provided to my Central Michigan University instructor. If you choose to participate in this project, please answer all questions as honestly as possible. Participation is strictly voluntary and you may discontinue participation at any time.
Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my educational endeavors. The data collected will provide useful information regarding marketing opportunities within various major events hosted by several SCA Kingdoms. Completion of the questionnaire will indicate your willingness to participate in this study. If would like a summary copy of this study, if you require additional information, or if you have questions, please contact me at the number listed below. Please allow for time zone differences, as I currently reside in Hawaii.
If you are not satisfied with the manner in which this study is being conducted, you may report (anonymously if you so choose) any complaints to the MSA Program, 989-774-6525 or 1-800-950-1144, ext. *6525
