Each year, Western Growers conducts a survey to determine the top issues facing our members.  This year, we are making significant improvements to the survey to allow staff to more clearly define the needs of our membership.  The results of the survey will help us more precisely prioritize our activities and focus on the issues, services and products of most usefulness to our members.
