2020 Spring Meeting Coronavirus Survey

We hope to make a firm decision regarding the Spring meetings by March 25th. As such, if you are planning to attend the meetings, but have not yet made your travel plans, you may want to hold off until after that date.

To help us in this process, we ask that those of you who normally attend TMS Meetings, were planning to attend these meetings, or are registered for the meetings, fill out this short survey so we know your intentions.


2020 Spring Meeting - Coronavirus Survey

Travel

As things stand now, are you currently permitted by your employer to travel to such meetings? If not, please let us know if there is a hoped-for end date for this restriction.

Registration

Are you currently registered for the Spring meetings?
If you are currently registered for the Spring meetings, at this time are you planning to cancel your registration if TMS continues to meet at the same time, and conditions remain as they are?
If you are not currently registered for the Spring meetings, would you likely still attend if conditions remain as they are?

Virtual Meetings

Virtual meetings can be effective, but in general, studies show that face-to-face meetings tend to me more effective for business where instant voting and rigorous discussions are needed. However, we recognize that virtual attendance at meetings allow many who cannot travel to participate. Likewise, split meetings allowing a few to call into a physical meeting also have benefits and drawbacks, and for some are distracting.

1 = Strongly Oppose, 5 = Strongly Support

Rescheduling

If TMS rescheduled the meetings (still in Charlotte), please show which dates work for you by rating:

1 = Does not work for me
2 = Works but not ideal
3 = My preferred dates
