Nice article!

I really love our FDS! And I love our "transparent" organization. I liked that there is a list with the helpers. Soon, we`ll have only them here, on earth! :D But we are in good hands... they are doing their training with good trainers, aren't they?   :thumbsup:

There is too a list of GB members. It's in the paragraph under "Who are the members of the governing body?"

Yes, but what I want to say is that on this list doesn't say which member of GB serve in which committee.

While at Warwick, my son-in-law to a photo of an information board in the hallway.  It listed the GB members and which committees they served on.  The list also included the helpers.  The list was presented alphabetically by GB members first then alphabetically by helpers second.  The list shows (committees listed alphabetically):

 

Coordinator's Committee: Samuel Herd, Anthony Morris, Mark Sanderson.

Personnel Committee:      Gerrit Loesch, Geoffrey Jackson, Anthony Morris, Mark Sanderson

Publishing Committee:      Samuel Herd, Stephen Lett, David Splane

Service Committee:          Samuel Herd, Gerrit Loesch, Anthony Morris, Mark Sanderson

Teaching Committee:       Geoffrey jackson, Stephen Lett, Anthony Morris

Writing Committee:           Samuel Herd, Geoffrey Jackson, Mark Sanderson, David Splane

 

This list was posted in March 2015.

very interesting ...

There is some changes from last one, but only in coordinators and personnel committee.

In coordinators' instead of Lett is Herd; personnel instead of Splane is Morris and Sanderson.

In all other committees are the same like last year.

The differences are interesting.  I had not seen the earlier letter, which Br. Jerry posted in July of last year.  

I do not know the date of my information (when the letter was written) or when it was put on the information board.  I only know the date my son-in-law was there.

When the Coordinator's Committee was first known as the "Chairman's Committee", I believe they rotated based on last year's chair, this year's chair and next year's chair but I'm not sure if that is true of today's coordinators.

In the end, I guess we do our best with whatever information we have at the moment, subject to change and verification.

When I posted mine was within a day or so of the announcement of a new "helper" and that an updated list was on the board. That made me go look and snap the picture. I was doing temp work at Warwick at the time.

I love the organization's increased openness in this regard. I believe it will only add to building trust in the overall

brothers who take the lead in the work. It is also interesting to see who is assigned to what duties. It takes away

some of the mystery of how the organization functions.
