debbiebrown - I've been invited to participate on such - not only Marriott related - but I have never agreed. Don't much see the advantage of doing so myself.
Debbie, I guess we all have to assess how to best utilize our time; some people feel "connected" via certain board participation; others important, or meaningful to them for being asked, and I'm not being critical of anyone's decision one way or another. I occasionally respond to questionnaires posted at end of an on-line reservation, or website visit, but I wonder what's the value? I do quite often reply to restaurant websites after eating at a particular place and am sometimes awarded enticing coupons to use on my next visit, but I would be extremely surprised if I were awarded any grand prize posted for entering these contests. For me, this is worth the time and effort.
