3.         COMMUNITY SURVEYS: Some of you may remember the Board of Directors has approved to allow clubs and Committees to create a basic survey which would be distributed to the entire Community. If you are part of a club that is interested in sending out a Community Survey please contact Andrea at for the specifics. This would need to be completed prior to September to ensure it is in the current fiscal year. This may be a good resource to poll the Community on various topics.
4.         WEBSITE INFORMATION: Clubs, Groups and Committees would you like to share more information with the Community? If so, a great option would be to send an article to the web team and have it posted to the Sunflower Living website.
A great option is to have it on the "What's New" tab. Very helpful and informative information shared. If you haven't reviewed that recently, we encourage you to do so.
