Re: Annual ward history template?

I agree that including photos involves some risk. Maybe adding a reference somewhere in the annual history to the stake or ward Facebook page would allow the reader a way to access photos without including them. After serving nine years as a stake clerk, I appreciate all of the changes that have mad...

Re: Annual ward history template?

It might be time to change the policy on getting permission slips. I see a lot of photos online and in church magazines and the Church News of large groups of members and nonmembers. I doubt they have everyone sign a slip

Re: Annual ward history template?

Having members share photos on a stake or ward Facebook page is a great idea. We started a stake page a few months ago. Would you need permission to include photos from there, since they are already published in the public domain?

Re: Annual ward history template?

I started a stake Facebook page where members can post photos of events. I think this may help with the annual history, if I want to include some of them. I don’t know if you would still need to get permission to use photos if they are already in the public domain

Re: Annual ward history template?

I noticed that you omitted adding photos, which I think are an important part of the annual history. I am careful about adding photos of children, however, since you should ask parents for permission first. As a stake clerk, I recently sent out an email asking the wards to submit their history all o...

Re: Annual ward history template?

Sounds interesting. I may not still be involved in this next year, but would like to see the whole process simplified for wards and stakes. The ideal method would be to have an app in LCR where ward clerks submit their documents to the stake for review, before it is submitted to the Historical Depar...

Re: Annual ward history template?

Can you see the problem? When you have fourteen different reports coming in to the stake, how do you get it all into one document and send it in to the church?
An app in LCR would solve this problem and end the paper avalanche.

Re: Annual ward history template?

How would you get nine ward and four stake auxiliary reports into one document and keep it under 12 meg? I am willing to give it a try. What could I tell the ward clerks that would help them have it ready for next year?
