Josh Chen gave a short training on how to reserve rooms in CCB. Please ask Josh about how to do this if you missed the training. Please don't email Josh to make room reservations - use the system! If you have admin access, please do not approve your own requests, let Josh do that.
Time Off Hours Submission
Here is a refresh on requesting time off:
Turn in by Tuesday noon, 2+ weeks before the requested day off.
Put the reason, in the tracksmart request, not in a separate email.
You are responsible for finding coverage for your different roles and for communicating with the different people that interface with you that you will be gone and who to talk to in your absence.
Emergency requests are fine, but please keep them to a minimum!
Part time people - Please record your days off according to your % FTE x 8 hours - except if you keep a fixed schedule only working certain days. In that case, please record the hours you actually miss.
Register - don't just assume we know you are coming. Make our registration numbers right. Paid staff and paid interns are free. Please pay for and register for food.
Keep it updated! All events that new comers or attenders might look for. Yes: Youth Group; no other LGs. Yes LGL meetings; no worship team practice. Yes to Women’s group. Yes to training school, outreach trips. Etc. For most multi-day events, just put start dates in the calendar and end dates in the notes!
Pictures are not required. Pictures will not show up on the main page if there is more than one event. If your picture shows up on the main page, because you are the only event that day you MUST have a picture that has large text imposed so people know what the event is when they look at the main page (without hovering over it) and also works on the web page [don’t have the text so big that it gets cut off on the bar.] See college retreat vs. Man Day pictures.
If you want your event to have a web page, you can create one, or you can use the calendar page. If you use the calendar page, then you will probably want a picture. Make your pictures, nice, not grainy!
Our advisory board meeting is the 20th and the 21st. We will be focusing on three main questions: how to balance our growth with our desire to send people out, how to grow our discipleship and LG leaders, and discernment about Evelyn's role here at Epicentre.
