For some of the more geographically dispersed branches like we have here in the USA, or New Zealand where they're all one branch, sending the login instructions to the branch secretaries seems awfully ineffective and not consistent with the RSCDS' stated desire to improve communication with its overseas members. It also seems to be another data point indicating the RSCDS management doesn't sufficiently understand or give consideration to the unique circumstances of its overseas members.

And what the heck is so dad-gum secret about the content of the members' area that it needs to be protected by such a cumbersome login process????
