Re: [802SEC] The IEEE 802 Wednesday evening Social.

Colleagues,    I have gathered some hard data from our San Antonio registration database that may help to clarify the issues that have been raised about the 802 Wednesday evening Social:

1.  Of the 1,609 total registrants that actually attended the San Antonio Plenary Session, we collected data that indicated that 1,530 would actually attend the Wednesday evening Social.

That's 95.1% who indicated that they wanted to attend the Social.  I'm hoping we will not let the 4.9% who choose not to attend to overrule the 95.1% who do choose to attend.

2.  I will add a couple of survey questions to the registration form for the March Plenary that will help to determine the cost-weighted preference of our attendees for the social event. 

If anyone would care to work with me short term to develop some meaningful, bias-free survey questions for the March registration cycle, please let me know ASAP.

With better data, we can hopefully make even better decisions.    :-) 

Buzz -

The "better data" needed here is not the number of people that say they would like to go to the social (very unreliable, as many that check the box are no-shows on the day), but the number of people that actually show up (difficult to count).
