RFKM Member Priorities Survey in Progress
Each year since our inception, RFKM has conducted a member priorities survey. SurveyThe information garnered in the survey feeds directly into the priority setting that our Board of Directors does each year. We have also included three questions from the new MCPS Director of Food and Nutrition Services this year. You should have received a personal invitation to the survey. Please respond and complete the 10-minute survey by this Friday, the 23rd. Please do not forward the survey link to others - your link is just for you and this is a members-only survey. If you did not get a survey invitation, please email Lindsey Parsons to request an invitation.
