New Agenda Items

Removal of moderators – we have a list now of a bunch of moderators who need to be removed for various reasons. Who should do it and how?

· Moderators – let’s talk about adding a Things to Do page to their responsibilities

  • Digital Collections - Slight subtitle change for Online Collections to include the word "collections".  See example on the Utah Statewide Online Collections title.
  • New LDS Church Records articles are being added that provide information about LDS Stakes and Wards including boundries, online records, etc.  See the Benson Stake link on the Cache County article.  Kudo's to the Volunteer Experience Committee.
