Young Single Adults Sub-category

Postby LTORDUSA1-p40 » Wed Oct 27, 2010 5:53 pm

Why was the Young Single Adult category left out of the CUBS categories? I have been receiving Stake Budget Allocations for them.

If you're talking about budget allocations, then the YSA category is no different from any of the other sources of budget allocations; there is no category for budget allocations for sacrament meeting attendance, Young Men, Young Women, or Primary. All budget allocations come into the Budget:Budget Allocations category. If it's important to you to subdivide those, you can create subcategories of Budget:Budget Allocations for each of those, and then create transfers each quarter into those subcategories. But I don't see the point of that, since you'll then have to move that money to other subcategories of Budget.

If you're talking about expenses, there is a Single Adults category. You can use that category directly, or if you'd like more specificity, you can create a Young Single Adults category as a subcategory of Budget:Single Adults.

That seems like a good plan given the hand we've been dealt, but unless they've changed the terminology on me (again), it should have been called "Single Member". "Single Adults" is the 31+ age group.

There was a time when "Single Adults" was the overall group - back when the age groups were called "Young Adults", "Young Special Interests" and "Special Interests".

I am kinda sorta waiting for two things.
(1) The dust to settle.
(2) The November 13th training.

After that, I think we will have a good handle on which way to go with names and terminology and subaccounts and a whole lot of other things.

One Question then:
1) Will the allocations received only be in one account? How will we know
what amount to add for Primary, Young Men, Young Women, and Young Single Adults?

The allocation will go into Budget:Budget Allocations. The stake will still get a Budget Allocation report, explaining what the source of the allocations is.

But I don't see any reason why you would need to break down the sources. Once a ward or stake has its total allocation, the total is divided among all the organizations, not just those 4. In my experience with ward and stake budgets, the amounts allocated to all organizations depends on their relative needs and plans for the year. It is not directly related to the amount of those 4 sources of the activity portion of the budget allocation.

I was hoping that they would be broken down. Since we are receiving extra amounts for Primary, YM, YW, and such, it would be nice to see exactly those extra amounts allocated to the intended categories instead of making us do the math.

How budget allocations are calculated has not changed post-CUBS. The way the funds get to you has. If you didn't worry about it before, I don't see why there is a need to worry about it now. There is no requirement that those funds be spent on those groups.

However, if you do want this resolution on your allocation, your stake clerk can provide you with it.

As far as I know there is no official term "single member" it is "young single adult" (18-30) & "single adult" (31+)

PS. There is also no term "mid-singles" some local leaders acknowledge it (or even have groups that go by that name) but SL does not.

Reference

I belive if you read the CHI (at least the one current as of today's date) you'll find similar language. Who knows what we'll find on Nov 13th. ;)
