I think the biggest thing is to include the younger generations. With your survey, you can ferret out what they may be interested in and how to involve them.
I'm trying to plan a family reunion for my maternal grandfather's side of the family. I and some of my 2nd cousins thought 2013 was what we should aim for since it's been over 10 years. Goal is to build enthusiasm, etc. between now and then. I started out by setting up a family group on Facebook, which is seeming to involve all the generations. In fact except for me and one of my 2nd cousins, it's the younger generation that's really been posting the pics, etc. of their ancestors / relatives.
Like you, I created a survey, which I will post to the group next week. And I'm hopeful, that this will give me and others ideas of how to keep building for the future.
