ROUNDTABLE SESSIONS:


CONFERENCE / SPEAKER EVALUATIONS  

Thanks to those of you who completed the "Rate Now" option for each speaker following their presentation.  There seemed to be some confusion as to which evaluation to complete during the conference...If you did not get a chance (or tried unsuccessfully) to complete the SURVEY MONKEY survey within the Evaluations section of meeting app while at the conference, here's your chance to do it again (or complete for the first time!)

The Survey Monkey survey includes additional hotel and conference evaluations (very important to us!) as well as speaker evaluations at the end.  PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO COMPLETE.  (Thanks!!)
