Slow wifi interrupting ward audits

I've conducted two ward audits in our Stake Ctr building in the last two weeks. Both times I was unable to complete the audit on my laptop, due to what seemed like a serious wifi speed lag. I gave up and switched to the clerks (Wards) computer which is connected by cord. With 2 or 3 wards all meetin...

Ward audit on iPad?

Has anyone completed a ward audit using an iPad? I did the practice audit from start to finish and the only problem I ran into was not being able to log out afterward. Hitting the “LogOut” button didn’t seem to do anything. Hopefully, just closing the browser window (Safari) logged me out. Thanks.

Re: Non-Bishopric members receiving Fundraiser funds

When I was a ward finance clerk, the scoutmaster and I were going over the proceeds of the scout camp fundraiser and preparing them to be turned in to the bishop, and someone from the other ward that shares the building (and clerk's office) chastised us for handling money without a bishopric member ...

Re: Non-Refundable Donations/Accounts

There are ways a missionary could recover an overpayment of funds. If "Missionary A" overpaid by say, $400, that money could be reassigned to "missionary B" who is still in the field. Then Missionary B's family could give $400 to Missionary A.

Re: Non-Bishopric members receiving Fundraiser funds

I personally don't consider fundraiser funds or other camp, high adventure, etc. funds to be "sacred funds". IMHO, the clerks/bishopric's responsibility for those funds begins when the money is turned over to them. Before that point the money is likely to pass through various people's hand...

Home teaching question

I have a question on home teaching that came up while printing out home teaching assignments in the clerks office that I hope someone can answer. How should a home teaching assignment be handled for a household with two member children, but no member adults? The single father (head of household) is ...

See Handbook 1 section 14.6.7. At the end of the 3rd paragraph it indicates that check signers should not sign for checks made out to themselves (or if they are the fast offering beneficiary). So in that case, the bishop should not sign the check even if that is the general local policy. Thanks for...

Is a clerk (or other signer) specifically prohibited from signing a chect made out to themselves? I don't recall reading that. Sure it's good practice, but can it be done? In our stake, the Stake President requires the Bishop to be one of the signers on all checks, so on the occasion that the Bishop...

In my opinion it would be far better to allow the family to have the excess missionary contribution transferred to tithing or fast offering. This would still allow the family to benefit from the extra contribution, without involving other members in the process. I agree that this would be a much mo...

This approach sounds very risky from a tax perspective. I would urge extreme caution and consultation with legal and/or tax experts before embarking on this. OK, I'll recommend that they spend a couple hundred dollars with a CPA or a tax expert before they go ahead with the trade. I'm not trying to...
