The purpose of this thread is to come up with ideas for the creation of a comprehensive STS notebook (I have 6 days left) for distribution to 40 (hopefully) STS’s at the Phoenix LDSTech Charter meeting next week. The notebook will contain templates, links, and other resources intended to help others and perhaps be passed to the next STS.
I am aware that information in a notebook would need to be constantly updated and that there is more current information on the Internet, but what new STS is going to know where to look, and what to look for?
What if there was a STS notebook with important links and other useful information?
If I can create a comprehensive sample, perhaps in the future, a church employee could look at the collected ideas and create a single webpage to access the latest data. BTW, I plan to send a sample of my work to Elder Eliason (LDSTech missionary).
For instance, where are all Ward's meeting times displayed on one web page?
Why is that important? The current info can be found in maps or CDOL. Set it down on paper now, and it will be wrong in 5 months.
Having Ward meeting times in a notebook is important because a new STS may not know anything about other wards in his stake. When I was called, I certainly didn’t. I’ve been the STS for several years now and I STILL have problems remembering which ward meets when and in which building. Having all information printed on one page in a notebook for all ward’s information such as: 1) the name of the ward, 2) the building they meet in, 3) their meeting times and 4) some contact information including the High Councilor assigned to the ward was and still is VERY helpful to me. For instance, when I get requests to resolve problems and I want to schedule the best time to meet, instantly having this information on one page is faster and more convenient than looking through several pages on the Internet or running a CDOL report for the information.

tm.lds.org is a great tool, but it currently does not show static IP address assignments made by the previous STS…like I said, it is only the beginning.
If you have any ideas for a STS notebook, please contribute.
