    As we begin thinking about next year's conference in Denver, we want to get your feedback about the Detroit conference.  We've prepared a survey in which we ask you about the Detroit conference in some detail. In addition to asking you to rank your experiences, there are lots of comment boxes.  Please let us know what worked and didn't work.  We'll take all input into account as we look ahead to next year.  There are also opportunities to make suggestions for topical discussions and tours for Denver.  

    Click here to link to the survey It will take about 10 minutes.  We'll leave the survey up through April 30th.  I'll send a reminder before we take it down.  

    Your feedback is vitally important to making next year's conference valuable to you.  Please fill out the form even if you weren't able to attend the Detroit conference.  Your responses are submitted anonymously, unless you include your email for follow-up.

    Many thanks in advance for participating!
