Leadership update tips:

  • Does the person in the leadership position have incorrect or incomplete information? IF YES, then edit information in the person record and save. NOTE: Only edit a person’s name to correct spelling or if they have recently married and changed their last name.
  • Is the position now vacant? IF YES, click on the Remove button and enter the end date when the person stopped serving in this position.
  • Has a vacant leadership position been filled? IF YES, click on the Add button and enter the new person for this position, including their start date, position status (Bi-vocational, Full-time, Interim, Part-time, or Volunteer) and home address.
  • Is another person in the leadership position? IF YES, DO NOT replace the person name as person records can be linked to multiple positions within the church, association, or state; instead click on the Remove button and enter the end date when the person stopped serving in this position. Then click on the Add button and enter the new person for this position, including their start date, position status (Bi-vocational, Full-time, Interim, Part-time, or Volunteer) and home address.
  • Does more than one person occupy the leadership position? IF YES, click the Add button under that same position and add another person for the position, including their start date, position status (Bi-vocational, Full-time, Interim, Part-time, or Volunteer) and home address.
