Two deacons quorums

Postby kleinman » Tue Aug 20, 2013 8:52 pm

I am trying to create two deacon quorum presidencies. When I "add position" and put the name of the second quorum pres. and list the title as quorum president, the system recognizes the 1st quorum president and won't let me create the second. I just got called, probably a newbie question, but any help would be appreciated.

[Moderator note: I split this question out from the Officers Sustained - two quorums topic, since it deals with a separate issue.]

Before you try to add a second quorum presidency, you first need to create the second quorum. A single quorum can only have one presidency, but a second quorum can have its own presidency.

So go to Organizations > Deacons. Note that at the bottom there is a button labeled "Add Quorum". Click that to create the second quorum. For that new quorum, use the blue "Add Members" link in the Members section to specify which deacons are in that quorum. Once you have done that, you can use the blue "Add Position" link for the 2nd Quorum to specify the leadership of that quorum.

Looking at, Organizations > Deacons, and I don't see an "Add Quorum" button. Perhaps that feature was removed in a recent MLS update (seeing this post is over 2 yrs old). I don't see a way to do it in LCR either.

Managing classes and organizations is in Leader and Clerk Resources now. I don't have access to ward-level Leader and Clerk Resources to see specifics, but there should be an "Actions" menu when you're looking at the Deacons quorum that gives you the option to split it.

Organizations > Young Men
Click on the "View Organization" link next to the deacons quorum
Click on the "Actions" button above the deacons quorum presidency and choose Split Quorum

In LCR I went to the "Edit" Pencil next to Deacons Quorum and selected "Split Quorum." I moved members of Quorum 1 into Quorum 2. However, those members are now absent from Quorum 1, and Quorum 2 is empty. I'm not sure where those members went!
