Changing meeting house address on the Raymond 3rd Ward Directory

Postby leavittbd » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:02 am

The current meeting house address for the Raymond 3rd Ward list is:
260 E 200 N (Knight St) Raymond AB T0K 2S0 Canada
I need to change the meeting house address for the Raymond 3rd Ward list to:
400 W 200 N (Taylor St) Raymond AB T0K 2S0 Canada
How do I do this?

You need to talk to your FM group. Building addresses come from the FMAT database which is updated by the FM group.

Thanks for the info about the FM group and the FMAT database
but I don't know what FMAT stands for or if the FM group is a stake level group or a church wide group.
How do I contact my FM group.

The FM (Facilities Management) group is the group responsible for building, maintenance and repair of church buildings in a certain area. An FM group usually manages buildings for multiple stakes but there are many groups across the world, each responsible for a certain geographic area.

One of the high councilors in your stake should be assigned as the Physical Facilities Representative. It is his responsibility to interact with the FM group for your area and he should already know how to do that.

So you need to find out who is your Physical Facilities Representative and ask him to pass it on the the FM group. If no one in your bishopric knows who the PFR is, you could ask the high councilor assigned to your ward or the stake clerk.

OR you could just file a ticket on the Facilities Issue Reporting tool and it will get to the facilities group quickly. :)

That's assuming the OP has access to that tool. As far as I know, it's not open to all members.

True, but there are quite a few people in a ward that do have access and they're usually easier to chase down than "someone" from the stake.

Our FM group has really emphasized use of the tool. It makes task tracking so much easier for them (and us as well).

I find that's a "group by group" thing. Not all of them seem to prefer that route.

Once they have done it you may still have to change the address in MLS and CDOL to get it correct everywhere. Certain changes do not propagate through the data bases. I would check with FM. Once they are done check maps and check CDOL to see if the corrections made it through the system.

When you're looking at your ward map, there's a small "Suggest an Edit" link under the ward information. I'm not sure where those suggested edits go, but that could be another thing to try.
