Short Survey February 2023

Reminder about Short Surveys – We know surveys are time-consuming and sometimes not fun to do.  We don’t want teams to have to sit and fill out a long survey at their first event before checking in.
We have provided a series of short surveys for you to take once a month.  Below are links to the previous surveys.  Make sure to complete each month’s survey.
Here are the links to the previous surveys:
