dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to identify the satisfaction from services received by businesses as members of Wellness Councils. All 105 members of the Wellness Council of Northwest Indiana were invited to participate in the survey. Fifty four (51%) participants completed and returned the survey on satisfaction levels.The instrument was developed to measure member satisfaction with the services provided by the Wellness Council of Northwest Indiana. The member organizations rated the council on a 5 point scale, with 5 being the highest possible score.A two way analysis of variance was conducted to identify differences in satisfaction by size and organization purpose; profit and nonprofit.The least satisfied group was the large for profit, while the most satisfied group was the large nonprofit group. Small for profit member organizations were slightly more satisfied than small not for profit organizations.Satisfaction did vary by size and organization, but in general, members were mostly satisfied with their participation in the Wellness Council of Northwest Indiana.Also, four open ended questions were asked, to allow the members to elaborate on other areas of interests or concerns. These results showed that members were interested in the following 2 areas: 1. education, 2. networking.Future research should include quantitative methodology that examines the meanings behind many of the narrative comments from the study. Future instruments should also include specific areas of satisfaction mentioned in the narrative responses.
