How to Host a Focus Group

 focus group people 

Focus Groups provide you with the chance to let your voice be heard. Representatives from the Department of Materials Management will come to your school or office so you can bring up any concerns, suggestions, or even compliments about any DMM product or service. We only take about 30 minutes of your time, and we come bearing gifts! 

Thanks to feedback from recent Focus Groups, we have added in-demand items to our warehouse inventory, ordered improved cafeteria trays, produced new classroom products through the custom print shop, and advocated for you with other MCPS offices and departments.
