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.
