Squadron Assessment

posted in: General info | 0


Attached is a google form for a squadron assessment. Using the Stop, Start, Continue method – I would like you all to take the time to fill out an honest assessment of your unit. I want you to evaluate everything the unit does and tell me if we should stop doing it, continue doing it, or start doing something new.

This is a perfect opportunity for you to be able to tell us what you think of the program. I am also curious to hear about suggestions for new things to do.

Please click here to access the assessment form.

Thank you for your time and dedication to this program!
