New Stake - List of Stake Calendars?

Postby bohrnjoshua » Fri Aug 08, 2014 3:21 pm

I'm a new Stake Clerk in a brand new Stake and I am starting to get e-mails from people asking me to reserve the stake center in their behalf. Part of the problem is that we don't have any stake calendars set up since we're new.

Is there a recommended list of stake calendars that I should set up to get ahead of the game? What Calendars do you have available for your stake? I approved two from a sister called 'Stake Young Single Adults' and 'Stake Single Adults'. I created a third called, 'Stake Baptisms'. Now someone has e-mailed me about reserving the building for a wedding. Should i create a calendar called 'Wedding/Receptions' ?

Your input is much appreciated!

I prefer "Private events". It could be weddings, family gatherings whatever.

As for the calendars, I'd add a "General Membership" for things like Stake Conference, and other events that involve the whole stake. (My criteria is it involves 50% or more of the adult membership.)

My goal is to create a set of calendars that members can subscribe to to get a list of events of interest to them. If you put too much on one calendar, they won't sync it to their personal devices. As with most things, one can go overboard on this, but that's the idea I try to strive for. As such, you're likely to end up with separate calendars for YSA, SA, Youth, etc.
