Our 2020 Instructional Trip Poll

How does it work?  First, sorry friends, it's only for members.

Click on the link in your poll announcement email from Friday, or on this link right here.  You'll be prompted to log in to the A2SC web server if you haven't already.

Once in you'll have the opportunity to answer 5 questions regarding a potential Instructional Ski Trip, plus a couple more that help define your level of interest in club activities.  It takes less than 5 minutes and your input is valuable to club leaders.

Your response is confidential and will be studied by the leaders only in the aggregate.   

(Note, a message on the polling page says otherwise and it's true, your response can be found and read IF we file a special request with Wild Apricot Support for access to the data.  The WA polling system can be used, and is by others, to support BOD and officer elections or referendums and as such must be open to audit. We don't need that for polling member interests.)

Please take the poll.  The bigger the response the better the data.  The poll closes on Tuesday August 28.  Results will be published ASAP in a future eBlast.
