Campos Voice of the Region On Line Panel

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

You may be aware of the Campos Voice of the Region online panel we have been developing for a number of years. Currently, we have 20,000 members/Friends of Campos.

Panel members are asked to participate in our own proprietary online surveys, on client surveys, and in focus groups. We are very sensitive to how and when we contact our panel members; we respect their privacy and do not want to overwhelm them with requests.

Where I need your help is in building the panel. Our goal is to be able to build a panel that represents 1% of all households in the 10-county southwestern Pennsylvania region. We have a long way to go to reach this goal! But with your support we can get closer.

I am personally inviting you to join the panel and to ask your adult family members, friends, neighbors, employees, and co-workers to join the panel.

In addition, please forward this e-mail invitation to your network of contacts and encourage them to join the Campos Voice of the Region online panel. They can complete an application by clicking on the link below to the Voice of the Region application area of the Campos Inc website.

By doing this, you offer them the opportunity to voice their opinion on regional issues and to have an impact on new products and services being introduced into the marketplace. They, in turn, are encouraged to send this invitation to their network of contacts, friends, family and coworkers.

Be a Friend of Campos and sign up today—

Go to http://www.campos.com/vor/join.asp and let your voice be heard.

Thank you so much for your help and your ongoing support.

Yvonne Campos
