Growth History Overview

Jan 8, 2015
 

The Growth History Overview is part of the 2014 Corps Review process.  This document is generated from SAMIS based on the statistics you have entered for your location.  To make sure that your GH Overview report accurately reflects all ministries at your locaiton, make sure you have entered all your relevant 2014 statistics.

Some of the changes to the report include:  reflection of Music and Gospel Arts activities, more Children & Youth activities have been included in the calculations, a reflection of Community & Family Services statistics.

To run a sample of your Growth History Overview report log in to SAMIS, choose CREATE REPORTS, choose the 'Growth History Overview' report, set the dates to Jan 2014 - Dec 2014, choose submit.  View your report on the View Reports tab. The system generates an Excel document, however, fields are locked and cannot be edited. 

It is important that you make sure all your 2014 statistics are completed as soon as possible, since SAMIS will be closing soon for 2014 entry.

Corps Membership - Additions/Removals Page

Feb 6, 2013
In the past, names assosicated with the Rolls Updates were entered onto two separate pages - in preparation for the Annual Review.  Names being added were entered onto the ADDITIONS page, and names being removed were entered onto the REMOVED page.

These two pages have been merged into one page, and names only need to be entered once. Examples are found below.

EXAMPLES
1.  Jane Doe has been enrolled as a Sr. Soldier - from the Sr. Recruits roll.  An 'A' has been entered under 'ADD - Sr. Soldier', and a 'T' has been entered under 'REMOVE - Sr. Recruits'.   This shows movement between Rolls.  a 'REASON' is not required for this entry.

2.  John Smith has been removed from Jr. Soldier.  An 'R' under 'REMOVE - Jr. Soldier' indicates this change.  And a 'check' has been entered under 'REASON - To Other Church/Corps' by way of explanation.

3.  Mary Brown has been enrolled as a Sr. Soldier - from the Adherents roll.  An 'A' has been entered under 'ADD - Sr. Soldier', and a 'T' has been entered under 'REMOVE - Adherents'.   This shows movement between Rolls.  a 'REASON' is not required for this entry.

4.  Tom Thumb has been removed from the Sr. Soldier roll - and the reason indicated is PtoG/Deceased.

When completed it will be easy to see which names require a Divisional sign-off, by scanning down the REASON column and highlighting those under REMOVE - Verified NonAttendance, and those with 'COMMENTS' explaining other reasons which may apply.

REMOVALS GUIDELINES: 
1.  If a person is being removed due to P/G or transfer to another corps/church, you may enter the number in SAMIS before the close of the year under review and before your review meeting with divisional staff. It is not necessary to wait until after the review to enter these numbers.

2.  If a person is being removed for non-attendance, a letter indicating their desire to be removed must be procured before removal will be approved.  If you have this documentation, you may enter the number in SAMIS before the close of the year under review and before your review meeting with divisional staff.  Have this documentation available for your review meeting.

3.  If a person is being removed for 'other' reasons, and you have already had discussion with your divisional staff and verbal approval that they should be removed, you may enter the number in SAMIS before the close of the year under review and before your review meeting with divisional staff.  Otherwise, you may wish to wait until after the review meeting to complete the removal in SAMIS.

4.  At the review meeting with divisional staff, the divisional representative will be required to sign-off on ALL removals to complete the removal process.

5.  Following the review meeting with divisional staff, the divisional representative will have access to make any changes to your Rolls for the year under review, so that your rolls will be accurate in SAMIS.

6.  Please reference the Orders and Regulations for Corps Officers, Section 4 'Revision of Rolls'  No.4 for further information regarding reasons for removal.  The O&R can be found on Lotus Notes under the O & R section.
