Eastern Division Survey on Meeting Dates

Sometime ago, we ran two polls here on Ethics Etc regarding whether the dates for the APA Eastern Division Meeting should be changed. Overwhelmingly, 368 people out of 400 said that the dates should be changed [1], and 504 out of 600 people would favor moving the meeting to sometime in January. [2]

The Eastern Division Executive Committee is now inviting APA members to complete an online survey. The survey is open until the Thanksgiving weekend, and is set up so that each member can answer only once.

Have you taken the survey? If so, what are your thoughts about it? I think that it might have been better if the survey had also been open to philosophers who are not APA members, since, anecdotally, some people have said that they have not joined the APA because of the Eastern Division meeting dates.

In any case, do complete the survey and allow your voices to be heard.
