We've recently received the results of our latest SEER Member Survey, and we're so appreciative of every member who took the time to respond. We take the SEER survey input very seriously. In fact, many of the changes you've seen in the last 24 months have been a direct result of what you told us through past SEER surveys.

I honestly can't thank you enough for taking the time to tell us what we're doing right and where we need to work harder. We hold ourselves to a very high standard - YOURS! We're listening and we'll keep making changes because the West Cook Y is all about our members.
Thank you for making this your Y and for letting us partner with you to better health and wellness.
