If your coalition has not completed CADCA’s 2015 Annual Survey of Coalitions, now is the time! Why is it important? Because CADCA’s Annual Survey is the only comprehensive nationwide survey of substance abuse prevention coalitions. Don’t be left out of this critical data resource. Besides, we’re giving away several great prizes through bi-weekly random drawings – from Kindle Fires to free registration to CADCA’s 2015 Mid-Year Training Institute.
Congratulations to the coalitions that have already won prizes. They include: Pierz Area Coalition in Little Falls, Minn.; Aransas Citizens Against Drugs in Rockport, Texas; Five Town Communities That Care in Rockport, Maine; East Baltimore Drug Free Community Coalition in Baltimore, Md.; and Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona in Guadalupe, Ariz.
Coalitions completing the Annual Survey before the deadline of Friday, April 17th are eligible to win Amazon Fire HD 6s (2 winners), individual registrations to CADCA’s Mid-Year Training Institute in Indianapolis, Ind. (2 winners), and 1-year CADCA coalition memberships (2 winners).
More than just another survey, this comprehensive web-based assessment is conducted annually to learn more about coalitions across the country. CADCA uses the Annual Survey to advance the movement by bringing a national focus to the local work of coalitions. The Annual Survey data helps CADCA advocate for coalition funding in Congress and promote community coalitions as vehicles for comprehensive community change.
We need your information to make the most comprehensive source of coalition information, even better. Your participation increases our collective understanding of coalitions, including what makes them effective and how they contribute to reductions in substance abuse.
CADCA’s Annual Survey is for ALL coalitions fighting alcohol, tobacco and/or drug use in their communities – you do not have to be a member of CADCA to participate. Participation in the Annual Survey of Coalitions is completely voluntary, yet vitally important if you want to increase your effectiveness in reducing substance abuse in your community.
