Survey helps leaders see needs

“A Strong Community Depends on You” is the theme of the 2013 Air Force Community Assessment Survey. The survey is sponsored by the Air Force Integrated Delivery System. Its goal is to make known the opinions and needs of the entire Air Force community including active-duty members, Reservists, Air National Guardsmen, their spouses and Air Force civilian employees.

The survey is anonymous, and no one will be able to link responses with personal information. The results will be used by base leaders and the Air Force to direct resources to the community services most needed and to their efficient delivery to enhance the well-being of community members. Past survey findings have resulted in providing services that benefitted service members and families.

Those asked to complete the survey will receive email or postcard invitations with a link to the online survey.

“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.”

– Gen. Mark Welsh III, Air Force Chief of Staff

“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.”

– Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Cody

Through the completion of the Community Assessment, survey responses can directly influence family services and related support activities at local bases and throughout the Air Force. Some of these include:

• Increased support networks for families such as the Adopted Family Program, the INTRO program and Singles Network group

• Expanded financial counseling programs for members and their families

• Job opportunities for spouses
