  • Our overall satisfaction rating of the Chapter is 3.97 on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being extremely satisfied with 78% feeling we do “just the right amount of events”
  • You prefer to meet in DC (with Arlington and Alexandria taking 2nd and 3rd place) in the afternoon/evening timeframe
  • You prefer to receive information 4-6 weeks out for events
  • The topics you want to hear more about are:  Strategic Planning, Career Development, Trends and Forecasting, Attendance Building and Event Management
