Survey Responses

  • Overall, very good comments received

  • Respondents continue to like the brunch format

  • Respondents liked having FD @ Ft. Jackson Officer’s Club and the good food

  • Respondents liked the format regarding the speakers we had this year : one Keynote Speaker, Oldest Grad, Youngest Grad, and a Cadet

  • Respondents enjoyed the Salute To The Nation presented by CSM (Ret) Marty Wells; however, suggested to not have presentation next year


Suggestions from survey
Suggestions from Survey

  • Will not utilize Event Planner for next year’s event; was helpful in handling mailings, printing, handling RSVPs; however, attention to details were lacking due to lack of time spent planning, coordinating, etc. due to competing obligations

  • Suggestion made to break away from ‘tradition’ of seating by Classes – ‘scramble’ Classes (unless requested) to allow younger Grads to sit with, and talk to, older Grads


Suggestions from survey cont
Suggestions from Survey, cont.

  • Suggestion made to use to ‘new’ version of the Alma Mater, rather than the original version many of us are used to

  • Utilize electronic invitations more as will save on postage costs (~$400.00); will need to advertise such EARLY, but will also still need to utilize USPS for some invitations


Next year
Next Year

  • Continue with Brunch format

  • Continue to hold FD celebration @ FJOC

  • Date already scheduled : 22 March 2014

  • Guest Speaker : BG Rex Spitler ‘80, Third Army / ARCENT Chief of Staff, formerly Third Army / ARCENT Director of Planning and Operations
