P1 Proposed Research Topic:
The survey that I have created pertains to the Community Events War Chest; an account set up by the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce to fund community events in and around the Missoula area. In the past, businesses have donated finances to the Community Events War Chest to enable the Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce to bid on events and bring them to the community at a low cost. The increase in population surrounding the days of the events benefits the businesses by increasing tourism, sales, and services.

The Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce is interested in examining this change in interest, and wants to assess whether or not the account should be maintained.
