Join the Chad reader panel!

What it’s all about?

Our Reader Panel is open to anybody who ever reads the Chad newspaper or visits the Chad website. It doesn’t matter how often you read the newspaper or visit the site – you’re eligible to join the panel if you care about the local area and read the paper (in print or online) every now and then.

But what’s the Panel all about? Basically, by joining the panel, you’re giving us the opportunity to contact you every now and then to ask your thoughts and views. We’ll ask you questions about the newspaper and website; for example, we might ask what you think about a particular section of the newspaper, how you rate a particular columnist or how interested you are in some changes we’re considering. We’ll also ask for your thoughts and views on what’s happening in our area. We’re proud to stand up for Mansfield and Ashfield and we’d appreciate your help in making sure we’re focusing on the issues that matter to you.

The Panel works like this…

* People register to join the Panel

* We send them a short survey, via email or post (we prefer email), to learn a bit more about each Panel member

* We then send out further short surveys every now and then to the Panel. At the same time, we try to share the results of the last survey with the Panel

If you join the Panel, you’re not obliged to take part in the research (but we obviously hope you will!). Why not sign up today and you can see for yourself what it’s all about?

If you join the Panel but later decide you don’t want to take part, that’s fine – just tell us and we’ll stop contacting you.
