Communication Survey Results What is the most frustrating communication problem for you as a SUM? - Incomplete and/or inconsistent information - Webinars review very basic stuff over and over - Exchange of info from GSGLA is not consistent.

Need direct access to all troops on eBiz. - SUM meeting should be once a month - Council training updates - Gold Award info - Waiting for leaders’ concern to be addressed, not hearing about conclusion and leaving leader feeling unsupported
