Ask The Network (ATN) gives members a unique chance to ask our 140+ professional body members and our mailing list of non-members about a topic of your choice, on any area of interest or practice.

See the FAQ below to find out how ATN surveys work and to get some inspiration for your own survey!

How does the PARN Ask The Network Service work?

- You choose six to eight questions on any topic to send our members – from operational queries to membership, governance and CPD questions
- We create, send and manage the survey for you
- When the results are in, we analyse the results and write up a valuable benchmarking summary for you
- We deliver a fast turnaround: from start to finish, the process takes just four to six weeks

How often can we use this service?

All of our members can use the ATN service for free twice a year!

Can I view the results of past ATNs?

Can you help my organisation with our business ideas?

 Absolutely. If you want to update your policies, review your current practice or bring in new procedures. If you aren't sure where to start, we can help you get the information you need. Email our Senior Researcher, Natasha Afitska, for more information.
