Some thoughts and observations from this past weekend for use in planning next weekend.
*After reading on the national site and having been part of this weekend’s training as well as past “closer to the manual trainings, I suggest a meld. Similar to what we did this last time with an extra training for the leaders as to the content that they will share in their separate team meetings. Structure the content with information as well as a prescribed order.
*A FL Secretariat has a 4-5 hour training session just for the new Rector/Rectora immediately after they have accepted the call and prior to any team selection. This is a great idea. It will give direction and focus right out of the gate and save a bunch of time wandering through the manual and making a lot of phone calls.
*I suggest a 2-3 person mentor team for the new Rector/Rectora during the lead up months. This team should include the most recent Rector/Rectora as well as past leaders. This mentor team’s involvement / guidance will be more significant in the beginning of the process but will diminish as the Weekend gets closer.
*Bonnie and Rhonda were phenomenal in setting the Bible readers, processional participants as well as Grace and Thanksgiving people. They came prepared ahead of time and had the entire weekend lined out early Friday. Made the balance of the weekend a lot less frantic.
*I suggest that we have a more formal VdC UT music pool. This is separate from the Weekend music team though Weekend musicians might be part of the larger pool. During the training months Geography, life etc can be a problem. With the larger pool we should be able to have musicians available for the training session and take some pressure off of the Weekend music team.
*Over all I think the mood of the Weekend was positive. I only heard of a couple of exchanges that were not positive but did not amount to a larger issue. I believe that stressing the getting along aspect of the Weekend early and often during the training was helpful.
*Comments about appropriate language needs to included in training as well as the opening remarks for the Weekend. There were some inappropriate remarks by team members during Bonnie’s Weekend and by some Weekenders this last weekend. Not X rated but not appropriate either.
*Bonnie gave me some advice that I think needs to be stressed to every new Recto Rectora: communicate often and stay positive. This really helps the mood as well as regular open exchanges help make sure that the whole team is on the same page.
Weekend #68 Rector
We need a place to store the trailer.
From Bill Lange:
For a number of years we had the trailer stored at North American Trailer at 2896 2100 S where a manager was a Fourth Day member. They did annual inspections and moved the trailer to and from GSLC.
About the time I took over the trailer 4 years ago, the manager took a job in Texas and left. For a couple of years they continued to care for the trailer. Then they said that they needed the space and we would have to make other arrangements.
I hired Quick Transportation 2670 S3270 W to move the trailer to GSLC. We left it at GSLC for a while until Rich Jones made arrangements with his friend who was a manager at Utility Trailer Sales 4970 W 2100 S.
His friend retired in December and our new contact there told the quick driver who was returning the trailer on Tuesday that they didn't have room for it. I had them take the trailer to Quick's yard for now. All three businesses are in West Valley.
Congratulations to the new members of the VDC Secretariat
The following people have been appointed to the Secretariat. This was necessitated by the lack of attendees at the February Ultreya and by the lack of volunteers to serve on the Secretariat board. We have since been able to identify these people who are willing to serve. They will be affirmed for a full three year term at the April 2nd, 2017 post weekend Ultreya.
