Subject: CHAS Programming Survey (2ND TRY)
Sorry for the duplicate post, but I would like to ask (beg, plead, etc.)
for those who have not responded to take a few minutes and do so.  I
appreciate the responses I have received, but my goal is a 10% response
rate and we are not there yet. PLEASE share your thoughts and help us
improve this important service we provide to CHAS members - Jim

CHAS members -

As one of the CHAS program chairs, I am always trying to improve the
quality of the technical program at National meetings.  It is extremely
important that programming meets the needs and desires of members.  With
this in mind, please take a moment to complete the brief survey below.
All you need to do is reply to me personally (NOT the list), mark your
answers to the questions below and send the reply to
jim**At_Symbol_Here**  All responses will be kept confidential unless
otherwise indicated.  If you wish to reply anonymously, please print
this out and send to the address below.  I will tabulate the answers and
prepare a report that I will distribute back to the group and present at
the executive committee meeting in Anaheim.

PLEASE take a moment to complete this survey.  I need all responses no
later than COB 3/5/04.  Your responses are important and we will act on
the results.  My complete contact information is below if anyone has any
questions comments or would like any additional information - Jim
