Q: Are volunteers allowed to take food from the pantry where they serve?

A: Volunteers should not take food from the pantry! Volunteers are not entitled to Conference resources unless specifically approved by the Conference in the same manner as providing assistance to a neighbor in need. Give more instead to those in need.

Q: Resolution 169 states that if there are three or more Conferences located within a reasonable geographic distance of each other those Conferences shall join together to form a District Council. Can you tell me what is a reasonable geographic distance to require an isolated Conference to join a District Council? 

A: In the past, the gauge for this used to be about two hours of driving time since it was to gather for District meetings. But since the pandemic, District meetings can be held in-person or virtual or a combination. So, this limitation is no longer a concern. If there are at least three Conferences, Isolated or not, within a Diocese we strongly encourage all Isolated Conferences to create and/or join a Council.

P: ¿Se les permite a los voluntarios tomar alimentos de la despensa donde sirven?

R: ¡Los voluntarios no deben tomar comida de la despensa! Los voluntarios no tienen derecho a los recursos de la Conferencia a menos que la Conferencia lo apruebe específicamente de la misma manera que se brinda asistencia a un vecino con necesidades. En lugar de eso, da más a los necesitados.

P: La Resolución 169 establece que, si hay tres o más Conferencias ubicadas dentro de una distancia geográfica razonable entre sí, esas Conferencias se unirán para formar un Consejo de Distrito. ¿Puede decirme cuál es una distancia geográfica razonable para requerir una Conferencia aislada a unirse a un Consejo de Distrito? 

R: En el pasado, el indicador para esto solía ser de unas dos horas de tiempo de conducción, ya que era para reunirse para las reuniones del Distrito. Pero desde la pandemia, las reuniones del distrito se pueden realizar en persona, de manera virtual o en una combinación. Entonces, esta limitación ya no es una preocupación. Si hay al menos tres Conferencias, Aisladas o no, dentro de una Diócesis, animamos enfáticamente a todas las Conferencias Aisladas a crear y/o unirse a un Consejo.
