Just a thought...to encourage attendance at the meetings and participation in the survey process could there be a drawing of some sort for all who participated. The "prize" could be a dept waterbottle or something small (for example) or if we don't want to do something of monetary value we could allow for a "dress down day" or something instead.
With the survey if the results need to be anonymous is there any way to track who submitted a survey (to populate a list of participants) but not their results?
Just a thought. Thanks for the opportunity to give feedback.
