Re: New Feature on jw.org for Processing Recommendations of Elders and Ministerial Servants
As a follow-up to our letter dated July 13, 2014, to all bodies of elders, we are pleased to inform you that the Web version of the Recommendations for Appointment of Elders and Minis- terial Servants (S-62) form is now available on jw.org. For those who are able to access jw.org, it will no longer be necessary for you to send PDF versions of the S-62 form to your circuit over- seer.
Once logged in to jw.org, you can access this new feature under the “Congregation” tab. Under “Members,” click on “Elders and Servants.” The congregation secretary (or another brother who has been granted the “Enter Member Information” role) may enter the information for the S-62 form by clicking on “Enter Recommendations.”
For more information on how to use this feature, click on “Help.” Locate “Congrega- tion,” then “Members,” then click on “Elders and Ministerial Servants.”
All the policies stated in the July 13, 2014, letter apply to this new method of submitting the S-62 form on jw.org. Your circuit overseer will automatically be notified of any recommen- dations you submit. When submitting an S-62 form in connection with a recommendation for reappointment, it will now be possible to upload the letter of recommendation from the previous congregation.
We trust that this new feature will improve the processing of recommendations of elders and ministerial servants. Please accept an expression of our warm Christian love.
