On August 9th and 16th, 2019, AFERM held three focus groups sessions at the George Washington University (GWU) Cloyd Heck Marvin Center. The focus group participants included 15 federal employees and eight contractors and other private industry professionals, totaling 23 participants. The focus groups provided AFERM members an opportunity to share their feedback and ideas directly on how the organization can improve and expand. The focus group discussion topics were divided into three sections and concentrated on key areas:
- Value provided by AFERM and member expectations
- Current satisfaction with AFERM offerings
- Future offerings
This report summarizes the information gathered during these Focus Groups.
