Re: [802SEC] Proposed 802 survey form


I understand your request, but I will decline to make that addition at
this late date as to do it well is not an easy task.   The New Orleans
survey did not attempt to quantify the costs and I decided to take the
same path.  In addition, the New Orleans survey did not remind folks
that each of the F&B items entailed cost.  While to some it may
suboptimal, I believe that data from the maximum registration fee
question, data from the F&B preferences question and the meeting
planners knowledge of F&B costs will be sufficient to determine which
F&B items are "in" and which are "out".

That said, I do appreciate the feedback.
