Calling remains after stake split

Postby dkarbuckle » Mon Apr 18, 2016 2:01 pm

Here's my second question today for all you LCR experts. Our stake recently split, and when adding a member to a new stake calling, I see that she is still listed with a stake calling from our former stake. As the stake executive secretary, I am unable to release her from the old stake calling. How can this be updated?

Short of employee intervention, I think the other stake will have to release her.

russellhltn -- Thanks for the quick reply. I'll see if the other stake can release her, even though her records are no longer in their stake.

I wonder how you can "see that she is still listed with a stake calling from our former stake".
I can't see any way you could know that. If her record has NOT been moved, then you can't see the calling in her membership record. If her record HAS been moved, then she should be automatically released from all callings.

You'd think so, but she hasn't changed wards. It's just her ward that's moved to a different parent stake. So that's not going to trigger the usual process you get when changing wards. I'm guessing that process for stake splits hasn't been fully automated just yet. It probably doesn't happen often enough for it to have become a priority.

Out-of-unit callings are listed on a member's record.

This process has been automated, but this stake split happened in early January. There were some issues with the process that were resolved recently.

So how can this calling be deleted for this individual? I have contacted the clerk in the other stake, but haven't heard back from him yet.

Contact the clerk in the other stake and have him remove the calling.

You may want to ask your bishops to make a list of members in their wards who are still listed as having callings in the old stake. Have them log into LCR and go to Organizations > Callings > Out-of-Unit Callings and look at the "Serving outside of Stake" section. That way you can give a complete list to the other stake and just do this once.

scgallafent -- Thanks for the information. Since our stake was formed from three other stakes, I will have to contact all thee other stakes :( I have contacted one of them and he has successfully removed these out of unit callings. BTW, I can see these out-of-unit callings with LCR and now I just need to email the clerks from the other stakes.
