The Facilities Management Group for resources?

[font=Calibri]I am SERIOUSLY thinking about volunteering my services to other Stakes (possibly through the FMG). I’ve read about so many botched attempts of Stakes struggling year after year, to do what we have successfully accomplished in our Stake because they lack resources and technical...
