MARCH DINNER MEETING FEEDBACK See full list of responses at kcpmichapter.org Member Area (upper right menu) Go down the left side and select Dinner Meeting Feedback – March 2014 Did you receive value from the meeting? Yes 17 80.95% No 4 19.05% Would prefer more vegetarian options. Location is perfect. DoubleTree: "We always try to make the pasta dish the vegetarian choice, so along with salad and vegetables, would often be sufficient." Could you please list on the website what will be served? This was done in past years, but I haven't seen anything but 'buffet' listed recently. We went to buffet style to consistently offer more choices. DoubleTree: "We design the menu shortly before the event. Not soon enough to post on line." Topics more applicable to the PM profession. Felt like speaker was only there to promote herself Bring another ethics speaker in. Much of her talk was about how great she was in her former role. I am fairly new to the PMI organization. This was my 3rd dinner meeting to attend. I have been very impressed with the programs and venue. Good job!! Good speaker, good food, good community of professionals Great Speaker! FOOD SPEAKER *** Note dietary needs in REGISTRATION comments *** 9
