General Manager Search Survey

The Board of Directors of Blue Ridge Mountain EMC and its General Manager Search Committee want to hear from the membership concerning the next EMC General Manager. The Board and Committee feel strongly that in order to attract and hire the right person for the job, they need to know the qualities and levels of education and experience our membership believes is most important in the EMC’s next leader. The following anonymous survey was developed to meet this goal. Thank you for taking the time to provide this much-needed feedback!
