Restrictions on Assistant Clerk - Membership

Postby msa43 » Fri Nov 13, 2015 9:10 pm

Presently the calling of Assistant Clerk - Membership is coded to be limited to Melchizedek priesthood holders in the system. Although this restriction is proper for Ward Clerk and Assistant Clerk - Finance, Handbook 1 specifically provides for the possibility that an Assistant Clerk who is not working with Finances (i.e. Membership clerk) be an Aaronic Priesthood holder. The restrictions coded should also reflect this.

I assume you're talking about 13.4.3. I can see how it could be interpreted that way. It will be interesting to have that double-checked.

Although the LCR team frequently monitors this forum, make sure you submit this as feedback (the blue box on the right that says "do you have feedback on this page?") Your feedback will go directly to the LCR team. Often times when you show them that the programming doesn't match the handbook, the programming will be updated to match.

Has this situation been corrected yet? Is there a way to put a priest in as Assistant ward clerk for membership?

Aaronic priesthood holders cannot be added as assistant clerks. See this thread:
