Subject: Re: [802SEC] The IEEE 802 Wednesday evening Social.Buzz:I find your conclusion on the registration numbers a bit misleading. They don't address the fundamental issues. Just because 95.1% say they will attend the social doesn't mean that 95.1% think the social is effective for networking with peers, or is a good use of registration funds. I know I said yes to attending, because I had already paid for it and had no choice if I would pay for it, and I can't in good concience ask my company to pay twice for my Wednesday evening meal.If the registration choice was "Sign me up for the Wednesday evening social at an additional fee of $40.", I expect the percentage would be much lower.--Bob Grow

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. :-)
