2021 Chesapeake Forum Annual Survey

We want to take this moment to ask YOU, as a valued member of our Eastern Shore community, to share your thoughts with us. We created this survey to learn what's important to you, regardless whether you have yet to take any courses from us, took only one, or took many!


We hope you will take a few minutes to give us your feedback! 


NOTE: There are 17 questions in this survey and our testing suggests that it will typically take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Thank you in advance for your thoughtful responses!
