cubs

Postby sorensonj1 » Wed Jan 02, 2019 9:08 pm

I'm a lot confused and at a loss at the assumptions made by this forum and stake leadership that something like cubs is some commonly known term or acronym. This is my deep breath. I had cubs thrown out at me at a meeting with a stake clerk tonight and thought he was referring to cub scouts. I have a sense that is not the case as I have pondered my earlier meeting. Been a ward clerk now for four months and I feel like I'm having to break some good boys club secrets to get information and training. Back to deep breathing.

The stake clerk was probably referring to the Church Unit Banking Services that was rolled out to the US in 2010. More information here:

I believe he is simply referring to the financial budgeting system currently used in the USA (and I presume other locations but I don't know that).

Thank you for your explanation. That is exactly what the stake clerk was referring to and totally makes sense now. Unfortunately, I work for an attorney who regularly uses what are called defined terms, however, the defined terms are always defined. I see terms and acronyms used in this forum with the assumption everyone knows their meaning. I appreciate you clearing my mind.

Unfortunately, this is true in many fields of interest. A list of terms, abbreviations, and acronyms commonly used in this forum can be found here:

I have seen this as well. I'm not sure why people have a tendency to abbreviate everything, but it can be frustrating. :) Good luck!

Unfortunately, it's one of the things we do -- often to a fault. To push it to its extreme:

From The R.M. (the movie):
You're not just an RM. You're an LDS RM; who's trained at the MTC; who became a DL, a ZL, and an AP; who was promised long ago by his bishop through a PPI after BYC that someday he'd be the EQP. I smell GA!

And if you think the Church is bad, try the Military! :roll:
