Childcare Survey Results
We had 100 hundred responses to the childcare survey. Of those respondents, 16 individuals stated that they needed childcare at the 2011 meeting. The respondents claimed that $250 would be enough to cover some parts of childcare, (i.e. not enough to buy a ticket, but would help with paying for care). At least two respondents claimed that they did not have children but would not mind of some part of their registration fee went toward childcare. There were several comments that a grant was long overdue, and that having small children severely impedes travel.
Please see the attached spreadsheet for the results of the 2011 Childcare Survey.
