My wife is the Stake Relief Society President and fielded this question enough to contact the General Relief Society office and was told the Relief Society follows the pattern of the priesthood and use 1st and 2nd Counselor. This is also found under Serving in the Church, Relief Society, FAQ. Relie...

I guess, technically, one could say that memo went out at least as far back as 1998 when the most recent version of CHI book 2 was released (see page 197 of CHI book 2). Thus one could also take the view that MLS 3.0 finally caught up with or clarified that "memo". But to be fair, not all church ma...

Thank you for the clarification. I think that I worded key points of my inquiry in a way that did not make clear the reason I was asking these things. By "notification", I remember when we received a memo that the position of Teacher Improvement Coordinator was being eliminated (even though it is st...

Relief Society Counselors in Latest MLS

Hey, why can't you choose different font colors anymore in here? Anyway, I would first like to say that I know we covered this over a year ago, and I read the thread again just now, to confirm that. Someone last year asked a question spurred by a change in his ward of the titles of the Relief S...

Yes, that is the information we've received in this forum. However, is at odds with the written policy. But we can all agree that loading actual data on a personal machine is a no-no. Okay, just so I'm clear on this... If, for some odd reason, I want to install MLS on my home computer without a...

It must ultimately be up to the local council/district, as in our case, the council doesn't require a minimum number of boys for the LDS units (5 minimum for others). And the "Scouting and the Church ..." document (from http://ldsbsa.org/resources.html ) states that "A Cub Scout pack, a Boy Scout t...

I'd also like to see a "standard" calling of Full-Time Missionary as a possibility for the Out-Of-Unit grouping. We use this in our ward to prevent full-time missionaries serving from the ward from showing up on the Members Without Callings report. That could also be used to help calculate the numb...

I guess my reasoning is that any head of an organization/committee that needs to regularly participate in PEC or ward council ought to have their own organizational group within MLS without having to create a custom organization for them. I agree wholeheartedly! As important as these organizations ...

The standard position names list appears to be derived from those position names (callings) found in the CHI. For the list you provide I can not find any of them mentioned in the CHI. Seminary Instructors (Teachers) are covered in CES documents. The Ward Employment specialist appears to have been c...

But I can think of another reason for having a Boy Scout instead of Troop Committee. If a ward is properly chartered in the BSA, they would have a separate Boy Scout Troop (for ages 11-13), Varsity Team (for ages 14-15) and Venturing Crew (for ages 16-18). But in the cases that I am aware, the ward...
