Return Benchmark Survey by Next Week

Manufacturing (a.k.a. “regular”) members, have you completed your 2019 Business Profile & Financial Performance Survey?

If not, you are missing an opportunity. Survey results offer participants a wealth of data they can use to evaluate their operations and identify opportunities for gains in efficiency and productivity.

The data, which is packaged in both bite-size and deep-dive formats, is provided to survey participants at no cost as a benefit of Association membership.

Industry Insights last week mailed surveys to every company that has not yet submitted one. You also should have received a reminder email on April 9. Complete the survey online or on paper.

If you want to participate but don’t have time, Industry Insights has CPAs on staff who will review your financial documents, transfer the data onto the survey, then destroy your documents. Your confidentiality is guaranteed.

The firm has extended the deadline to submit surveys to the end of April. If you are a regular member who wants to participate but has not seen the survey, please tell someone. At the Association, contact Kristi Ruggles at (314) 878-2304 or

At Industry Insights, contact Matt Chaffin or at (614) 389-2100, ext. 115.

Participants will receive their report cards and a comprehensive analysis in June.
