Voting Transfers

Voting Transfers

Our church clerks in North America handled over 31,000 membership transfers in 2018, as members joined new church families. eAdventist takes most of the “paper and postage” out of this process by creating an online clerk community but the vital “people” components still take plenty of time and energy.

If you’re a church clerk, you are (or soon will be) very familiar with the 3 steps your church follows to “vote” on a transfer request:

  1. Church board – recommends that the transfer be granted or accepted
  2. 1st reading – printed in the church bulletin and read aloud
  3. 2nd reading – printed in the church bulletin, read aloud & voted (following week)

We’ve just added the new Transfers to Vote report that will make your preparation for Step 1 much easier – print it before each church board meeting. Here’s a sample:

Take each item in one’s hand and ask: “Does this spark joy?” – Marie Kondo

We also decluttered the Transfers screen to make room for this new button – Marie Kondo would be so proud. The old “Print Pending” button that conference clerks use for printing transfer mail has been shortened to “Print” and moved into the “Offline & International Transfers” box (top, right corner). This creates paper transfers for the churches that aren’t “online” with eAdventist.

The “Settings” link allows you to choose how many days the “Completed” and “Withdrawn” tabs should include.

Voting on a transfer still takes time – a board meeting and two Sabbaths – but we’ve taken another step to make your work between votes as fast and efficient as possible.

  2. Good article

    Does anyone know if Puerto Rico is NAD or not? I understand that it is considered an international transfer by our SCC, but ‘t search on eAdventist yielded no results on whether to use NAD or non-NAD on the Organization Requests page.

    I see this sign : https://i.imgur.com/2Uk0eKb.png

    so I suppose this answers my question, but is it really not part of NAD? Seems like it should be judging by that list.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    • You’re welcome! Actually, international transfers will probably be getting easier in the near future, too. We’ll be visiting the ACMS team in Brazil this month to talk about it.

  3. Having a written account of the transfers to be presented at Board Meetings is very helpful and excellent for individual Board members record-keeping. Good job!
