OES seeks views on important issues facing the organization
In early May, the OES Board of Directors will take part in a strategic planning retreat to address key issues that we will face over the coming months and years. As an essential first step, we are seeking your views about priorities for the organization, current strengths, weaknesses and areas of opportunity.
All Stewards/Remitters and Sub-Remitters are invited and encouraged to complete a brief online survey to provide feedback to this process. The survey is available now and will remain open until 5 p.m. on Monday, May 3, 2010.
Your response will be aggregated and no individual remarks will be directly identified. By sharing your thoughts, you will play an important role in shaping the future of OES. We look forward to receiving your comments and thank you for your assistance!
