Boy Scout/Order of the Arrow Membership Survey
To learn about how to better serve your unit, our lodge is conducting a survey of all unit leaders in the council. The survey is entirely anonymous, and contains questions about how the OA serves your unit, and what we can be doing better. Completing the entire survey should take approximately five minutes.
Your feedback is valuable whether or not your unit participates in the OA program.
Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and give us your feedback. The lodge will use this information to improve how it serves your unit. The results are also shared with a national membership task force, which will use the results to develop new resources for both lodges and units.
The survey may be found here: http://scouting.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_elfjTBigS96VdVX
