Survey Reminder for Clubs

We have been asked to remind Club Presidents about the survey distributed before Christmas regarding LTPAD implementation.  SSC realizes that they are asking a lot, but need your input so that they can learn how to support clubs. The survey will close on March 4th.

If you have already begun the survey, but haven’t completed it, you can finish by clicking again on the link below as long as you are using the same computer. If you have not begun use the link below to start:

Note, it will likely take you around 30 minutes to complete.
