  Congress Survey Reminder

Much thought and hundreds of hours have gone into planning Congress 2011. And we want to know your experiences. So please take our survey after Congress.

Use the form that you will receive in your Program Book at Congress to evaluate and take notes of your Congress experience. However, instead of turning in that form, we prefer that you fill out the online version of the form. at

Our online form will be available beginning on Friday. It will save us the hours required to enter all the information manually so we can achieve our totals more quickly.

Pass along this emailing or our link — — to share with friends and encourage them to sign up for our Congress Emailing for updates. If you do not care to receive future updates, you can find removal information at the bottom of this message.

Last year we witnessed two of the largest natural disasters in recent memory in Haiti and Pakistan. And through the generous participation of Congress 2010 attendees in our Cell Phone Recycling Initiative, we have been able to donate $1,800 to Catholic Relief Services’ emergency assistance to Haiti. Again this year we are partnering with to collect phones to benefit Haiti and Pakistan. Bring your old cell phones — working or not — with you to Congress. More than 130 million cell phones are thrown away every year. Don’t throw away electronics that should be recycled. Do your part to recycle your old cell phone — and help us help Haiti and Pakistan in the process.

Our last Congress Emailing had a bad link with the online speaker handouts.
Some of the Arena and Hall B speakers have provided handouts for their workshops. This option is for speakers assigned to the biggest rooms where the capacity is too large to provide everyone handouts. These links are also available on our Speakers Page.
