Membership Surveys, Benchmarking and Data Collection

The ABA Division for Bar Services serves as a clearinghouse for bar association membership surveys and other data-collection projects to facilitate the sharing of resources among state and local bar associations.

We can also provide hands-on help with your membership survey or other research project through our Market Research Services. Before you can strategically move forward, you need to know where you stand. We can help you understand how your members and nonmembers view your organization, and where opportunities may exist to strengthen your bar operationally. We will assist you with survey development, dissemination and provide detailed analysis of your results.
