U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission
National Plan For the Centennial of Flight Commemoration

 

Section 12 - Measures of Success


As with any major undertaking where public funds are expended, it will be important for the Centennial of Flight Commission and its partners to be able to judge the success of the commemoration. Because the events and products of the 2003 celebration will be diverse and, in some cases global in scope, the measures of success of the commemoration will also be varied. The following are proposed measures of success:
