The Annual Update is the process where once a year the Research & Information team send out a request to each Operating Location (Op Loc) ask them to update the profile information in the international database of operating locations. The Annual Update team has developed a new on-line version of the survey which can be found at survey.ywam.org. Location should automatically receive the request in the fall of each and the email request will have a link to start the update process.
Locations can also update their profile at any time user the sister site update.ywam.org. The although the two sites are similar they are not exactly the same. The Annual update asks research questions which can't be answered via the update side and the update site has some tools and functions which are not available on the Annual Update (survey) site.
