Yes. If we could do this already without forcing the introduction of a middle man, it would be wonderful. The function that we are looking for as stake leaders is that stake leaders of auxiliaries be authorized to use the e-mail broadcast function of lds.org w/o necessitating a third party to intervene, e.g., a Stake RS President could directly issue an e-mail broadcast via lds.org to those stake members who have chosen to be notified of RS news, a Stake YM President directly issuing an e-mail broadcast via lds.org to those stake members who have chosen to be notified of YM news.
Using the current system, our "workaround" is as follows (in the example of the Stake YM in our unit):
* Stake YM Presidency approves news item for YM
* Stake YM Presidency member requests via e-mail for Stake administrator (Stake Exec Sec) to send e-mail to all Stake members with YM news updates selected on lds.org
* Stake administrator acts on request w/o requiring individual approval from Stake Presidency
Thus the Stake Presidency is not burdened with approving each request, but we still have a middle man who has to do the work for the auxiliary, when this step should be cut out entirely to be more efficient. In essence, we are lucky to have a patient Stake Exec Sec to muddle with these routine tasks. But if he is out on business, a Stake Presidency member has to be notified to issue the e-mail broadcast.
I will suggest our Stake Presidency make the recommendations for changes to lds.org via the administrator function, as suggested.
