ASRAB is hosting a research project to investigate why some blind and visually impaired individuals are engaged with active living programs with ASRAB and why others are not engaged but may desire to become more active. It is ASRAB’s mandate to “support Albertan’s who are blind or visually impaired to live physically active lives and participate in competitive sports programs.” We are looking to find ways to engage all visually impaired Albertans in physical activity.
Dean Kozak, a long time member of ASRAB with a career in active living- is completing this organizational leadership research project as part of the requirement for a Masters of Arts in Leadership (MAL) at Royal Roads University. ASRAB is thrilled to partner with Dean on the project.
As part of the research process, a focus group will be conducted as one of the research methodologies. To participate in this focus group you must be 18 years of age or older and an active ASRAB member in ASRAB’s active living programs. Please refer to the attached letter Click Here for full details on the project.
We would REALLY like your input on this matter!
The focus group will be held at 6:00 PM on Wednesday November 9th, and will last a maximum of 90 minutes. Supper will be provided.
Please RSVP on or before 4:00 pm MT on Friday November 4th. By replying by e-mail (with ASRAB in the subject line), telephone, or in person, you may register to participate or withdraw from the project at any time.
