CES Secret Friend Activity

CES Secret Friend Activity

Information Gathering Via Webform

The Secret Friend Activity is designed so CES members can get to know fellow members better. You are invited to participate in this informal, voluntary arrangement. You are encouraged to commit to sending (anonymously) notes, cards and remembrances throughout the year.

The information you provide will be shared with a fellow CES member that will get matched to you as your Secret Friend. A fillable Secret Friend Information Sheet and link to the Secret Friend WEBFORM will be shared out to the CES membership via email when the listserv has been updated to the new membership listing. Once the info sheet is filled in- please attach in that webform to be entered into the activity. Aim to have all forms in by December 15th for the following year's activity. Matches to be made first week of the new year and notifications sent.

Let your imagination be your guide, not needing to spend much money, just be thoughtful in your sending. It is always fun to be on the receiving end, so in fairness to all involved, we ask you to be considerate in keeping the spending at a minimal amount. Remember, “It’s the Thought That Counts!”

To become another member’s Secret Friend, please fill out the webform at the link provided below, an Information Sheet is provided to give you something to write down your thoughts on before you fill in the boxes in the SECRET FRIEND Webform.

Once webform results are in (December), matches will be made and your Secret Friend’s information will be emailed to you (January). The reveal of who was matched with who – takes place at the CES Annual Meeting.

So… shhh… keep it secret and enjoy these months of sending happiness in the mail!
