Calendar and Events
Staff Training Meetings
Staff get-to-know-you get-together scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, 20 June 2015, at the Missoula Stake Center at 3201 Bancroft Ave, Missoula, Montana.
You probably have heard that we (Cary and Colleen Holmquist) have been called as the Missoula Family History Center co-directors, replacing Gene and Carole Kammerman.
We would like to invite everyone on the staff and volunteering at the FHC to a get-togther to get-to-know-you at 10 a.m. in the Missoula Stake Center multi-purpose room (next to the kitchen) on Saturday, 20 June. We're choosing that hour so it won't be too early for a weekend day and yet be finished in time for most of the weekend to remain available. We were thinking of meeting and then taking an early lunch break--we'll bring subway sandwich and everyone bring pot luck favorite lunch sides like chips or salad or dessert and beverage.
We have heard that we need to discuss 2015 summer hours and scheduling. We would also like to discuss goals for the FHC, concerns you may have for the center, how to attract more people to the center and its resources and so forth. We might have a little bit for training as well. Please let us know if you have something specific for discussion or training that we might include--or consider for future meetings.
