4/12/2013 - JOINT BASE ANDREWS, Md. -- "We're
listening" is the call from the Air Force Integrated Delivery System
(IDS). The AF IDS is sponsoring the 2013 Air Force Community Assessment
Survey. For the first time, the Community Assessment Survey will be
administered to the Total Force: Active Duty members and their spouses,
Reservists and their spouses, civilian employees, and for the first
time, Air National Guardsmen and their spouses. The survey plays a key
role in identifying where resources are needed most to enhance the
well-being of the entire AF community.
The Community Assessment Survey will sample members of the Air Force at
installations worldwide along with key Reserve Installations and Air
National Guard Wings. Active duty members, Reservists, Guardsmen and
civilian employees will be notified by e-mail to participate in this
survey. Spouses will be contacted by postcard with an invitation to
participate. Each invitation will include a link to the online survey.
The anonymity of survey participants is assured as no personal
identifying information is linked to responses. This means that no one -
the Air Force, the government, nor the contractor - will be able to
link any aspect of your responses to your personal identifiable
information. The overall success of this survey relies on the full
cooperation and participation of each survey respondent. Guardsman and
spouses are strongly urged to take part in this important study.
"Everything we do depends on our people, the living engine
of our Air Force. The entire Air Force leadership team is committed to
doing all we can to support our Total Force Airmen and their families.
We know that through your valuable input, the state of our Air Force
will remain strong, ready and capable of delivering airpower, whenever
and wherever the Nation calls."
-- Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley
Opinions and comments made from the previous waves of the Community
Assessment Survey have directly influenced support activities and family
services throughout the Air Force. The benefits of participating in the
survey can influence policies and programs that directly impact
services and support to members and their families. Policies and
programs impacted by this survey include better financial counseling
programs, increase support for Guardsman and their spouses, and
reduction of ancillary training requirements, to name just a few of the
benefits participation in this survey will produce.
We, ANG are listening, but we need you and your spouse to complete the survey.
