YW Leader Workshop??

I have had a thought lingering in my mind for a long time now - probably about a year.  I've wanted to have a YW Leader workshop for YW leaders where there are classes, and you rotate thru every 40 minutes or so.  I would have classes on class activities, girls camp, leadership training, etc....  I would have to charge, maybe $5, to attend so we could make copies of the class information, have refreshments, things like that.

Initially I am thinking to have 3 rotations.  You can choose 3 classes to attend.  Each time slot would have maybe 3 class options (depending on the number of women who sign up).

As a YW Leader - would you attend this?  If you live out of state (outside of Central Utah) - would you be interested in traveling to attend this?

I really would like your thoughts on this.  I would have to have at least 100 women attend to make it worth while.  Please leave a comment if you would attend something like this - and leave suggestions for class ideas you would like to see taught - and if you are an expert (or at least attempting to be) in something you would be willing to teach at this workshop.

Thank you so much!!!

Responsibilities of Class Officers


Responsibilities of Class Officers
"When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the
service of your God."  Mosiah 2:17

Care for Each Class Member.  Class officers care for each class member.  They
help her feel needed and loved.  They pray for her, spend time with her, and
become genuine friends.  They also help class members establish close
relationships with each other, learn leadership skills, and live the gospel.  They
plan a special welcome for each young woman as she enters the class.  Class
officers have a special responsibility to friendship new class members, lessactive members, and members who have disabilities or other special needs.

CLASS PRESIDENT: Serve on the Bishopric Youth Committee (BYC), attending
once a month with the Young Women President, and the other class
presidents. You are expected to be at BYC each month, if you cannot make it,
you are responsible for sending someone in your place, either a counselor or
your secretary.  Involve your counselors by delegating responsibilities,
including the conducting of meetings.

1st COUNSELOR: Counsel with the president.  Give suggestions and ideas.
Accept and carry out assignments.  Be prepared to represent the class in
planning meetings when the president is unable to attend.  Be loyal and
support the president.  Be supportive of the decisions made by the president
or presidency.  Help plan a three month calendar of class activities.

2nd COUNSELOR: Counsel with the president.  Give suggestions and ideas.
Accept and carry out assignments.  Be prepared to represent the class in
planning meetings when the president is unable to attend.  Be loyal and
support the president.  Be supportive of the decisions made by the president
or presidency.  Help plan a three month calendar of class activities.

SECRETARY:  Keep records.  Mark attendance rolls, prepare agenda for class
presidency meetings, take minutes at meetings, and fulfill other assignments
from the class president.  Help plan a three month calendar of class activities.

HOW TO BE A BETTER CLASS PRESIDENCY MEMBER:
Study the scriptures daily--without fail.  Pray twice daily--without fail.  Attend
your Sunday meetings.  Attend Seminary (if applicable).  Attend mid-week
activities, unless you are on a death bed.  Ask for help.  Do not procrastinate!
Be early to your meetings and activities.

YW Value Flowers - new design

I made a banner for our New Beginnings last week.  I had so many compliments on it.  I couldn't believe it really - it was just something I whipped up last minute.  None the less - I now have it available on my YW website.  I am thrilled that so many people love it!  I am actually thinking of making it available on poster board, and as a bookmark (maybe??).  What do you think?

You can see and order it here.
