We want to know what you think! Join our AIM membership insight group

Would you like to join a forum of AIM members to provide regular feedback on all aspects of your membership? Can you help us ensure your membership benefits are meeting your needs and those of all our members? Do you want to help shape AIM’s policy and advocacy activity? If the answer is yes, then join our new insight group!

What’s it all about?

Building on our biennial member surveys, this new initiative is to further strengthen and deepen our insight into the support members need in the fast-moving environment we are all operating in.

It will help AIM develop its programmes, can act as a testing ground for new ideas and initiatives and enable us to hone our response to the common challenges and opportunities facing our community.

Who can join?

We are looking for members from right across the UK, from a variety of organisational backgrounds and with a range of experiences. From managers and volunteers, to curators and front of house staff, to directors, and all points in between.

In other words, a group that is fully representative of the many organisations and people that make up AIM.

What’s the commitment?

You will be invited to take part in no more than four focus groups a year, of around 90 minutes length. All focus groups will be hosted by an external facilitator, so your responses will remain anonymous. These focus groups will run quarterly, the first of which starting Nov/Dec 2021. Whilst we anticipate these will mainly take place online, we hope to set up at least one face to face meeting a year, when feasible to do so.

In addition to taking part in focus groups, we may canvas your opinion on a variety of themes via email or phone to help AIM respond to the regular requests for input it receives from e.g., UK Government, ACE and so on.

We anticipate refreshing the membership of the Group in line with the running of our Biennial Survey – so the maximum commitment is approximately eight hours a year for two years.

What’s in it for you / your organisation

This is a great opportunity to network with colleagues from organisations of all sizes and types from across AIM, and with a wealth of different experiences. You’ll hear about the latest challenges and innovations developing across our community and can help make a real difference. Finally, you will be enabling AIM to shape and sharpen its work and innovate in the face of challenging times.
