Hello MWA IRD Attendees,

Thank you for patience and persistence. I have received a few emails alerting me that the survey link wasn't working properly. I noticed that several attendees have already completed the survey, so something may have corrupted the link. Please alert me directly if you are having difficulties accessing  the survey. Thank you. I look forward to your feedback.
