2013 Air Force Community Assessment Survey

survey
Those Airman selected to participate in the 2013 Air Force Community Assessment Survey are highly encouraged to complete it. Airmen participation in this survey is completely anonymous.

The survey is used to inform senior leaders of strengths and needs within each Air Force community and develop action plans to make them better places to live and work.

“Our Air Force is ALL about people…caring for Airmen and their families! Please invest some time in sharing your thoughts and opinions on how we can do this better and make our Air Force community stronger,” said Gen. Mark. A. Welsch III, Chief of Staff of the Air Force.

Participation is very important. Results from previous surveys have directly influenced policies and programs that support service members, civilian employees, and families. Responses to the 2013 AFCA will assist Air Force leaders and service providers in their efforts to improve the Edwards community.

“We need to make sure our programs are meeting the needs of Airmen and their families. This survey is one way we can learn how well we’re doing that. It’s every Airman’s responsibility to provide some honest feedback to help,” said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Cody.

Those invited to take the survey should have received an e-mail in their mailbox last week.

The survey is available online and takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete, depending on individual responses.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and completely anonymous. By entering and answering questions in the survey, Airman are consenting to participate. Everyone is encouraged to answer the questions honestly and can skip any question they do not wish to answer.

The point of contact for the 2013 AFCA at Edwards is Nancy Koch-Castillo at nancy.kochcastillo@edwards.af.mil; or Kimberly Shirley at kimberly.shirley@edwards.af.mil.

Please take the 2013 Air Force Community Assessment Survey today!
