Have you recovered from your time at the Convention? I know some of you took advantage of the good weather after the end of the convention to travel up and down the east coast enjoying the sights. Some of you are just now returning from your trips while others have been back since that weekend.
As we all try and recover and relive the memories, could you take a minute and help the convention committee for next year? They would love to have your feedback about what you liked, areas for improvement, and more. The time you spend right now to let your voice be heard helps our volunteers throughout the year to create an event catered to everyone!
We have an anonymous survey (unless you elect to identify who you are) If you could take few minutes to fill out this survey, it would be super helpful! 2017 Convention Survey If you would prefer to not use the google form but would like to answer the questions let me know.
Before I sign off, why not go online and search for the following hashtag: #AKAGN. You would be surprised at the number of photos and videos that your fellow attendees shared from the convention! Perhaps there is a photo of you from someone else that you didn’t get a chance to properly meet. Well guess what, you now have an easy ice-breaker. So go ahead, introduce yourself, and lets make even MORE great connections. Because, if you haven’t heard, We All Fly Higher Together. 🙂
