CAAR Conference Survey

Every year, CAAR works hard to deliver an event that delivers tremendous value to delegates, exhibitors and sponsors. To help achieve this goal, we rely on feedback provided by members through the annual post-conference Member Survey.

The Conference Survey is your chance to let the conference planning committee know what you liked (or didn’t like) at the conference, and what you hope to see at next year’s event.

We value your opinion – watch for a Conference Survey announcement, on and in your email inbox, in the weeks following Conference. When you receive it, please take a few moments to share your thoughts and suggestions on how we can build on our success and continue to make the CAAR Conference memorable and valuable for everyone in attendance.
