Essentially, the wording is meant to see what people thing about the professionalism of
people involved in the user group. This includes respectfulness, as we are trying to gauge
whether we should improve our demeanor. It is not meant to be about the meetings, since we
are still making them more formal. Additionally, there was a feeling that we didn’t need
to ask about the meetings, since they are such a small part of what we do that it would be
better to focus on other things instead.

I'm a little confused by the questions about professionalism. Am I being asked to rate
whether people are well-organized, if interactions are always respectful, or something
else? Part of the ambiguity here is because most meetings are, in the literal sense of the
word, non-professional meetups which are explicitly social gatherings by design.

I would just like to let everyone know that Maia and I have been working on a survey for
members of the user group to see the direction in which people would like to see us move
in the coming year. It should take you no more than five to ten minutes to complete, but
we are interested in learning more about what everyone thinks about how things have worked
in the last year, as well as where we can improve in the future.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me individually, as I would be
happy to help. I would ask that everyone try to please fill out the survey in the next
week or so, so that we an tabulate the data within the coming weeks.
