Hosting agencies, if you are planning and praying for a NOMADS team during the latter part of 2012, now is the time to get your project application in to the NOMADS office. Please click on REQUEST HELP and follow the instructions for making application in 2012.
Several of our hosting agencies have already applied, and so we have posted several winter-spring 2013 projects for signups. New projects will be added weekly, as they are received and processed. NOMADS, are you ready to sign up for 2013 yet?
If you've been waiting to join a team NOMADS, now's your opportunity as we've opened ALL of our projects in 2012 to signups, even if there is not a leader in place. Login to the member's area and use the project signup software, or email or call the NOMADS office for assistance.
During period 11 we’ve added Ocean Park Retreat Center in Ocean Park, WA, and in period 13 we’ve added Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Chatham, IL, Aldersgate Camp in Ravenna, KY and Belle Haven, VA at Occohannock on the Bay Camp. In period 15 we’ve scheduled TMM Family Services in Tucson, AZ and First UMC in Taft, TX, so all of these now have leader openings.
Camp Kingswood in Minnetrista, MN during period 10 (begins July 16th), Camp Horizon in Arkansas City, KS during period 13 (begins Oct 8th). Both of these projects will require a leader signup prior to them being opened to other signups.
Now available for leader signups: Period 8 in Bigfork, MT at Flathead Lake UM Camp, Period 9 in Rathdrum, ID at Twinlow Camp and in Pontiac, IL at Evenglow Lodge. Also Period 12 in North Webster, IN at Epworth Forest Conference Center and in Topeka, KS at Forest Park Conf and Retreat Center. Also, the Life Enrichment Center project in Fruitland Park, FL has been moved from period 15 to period 14 during 2012.
NOMADS, login to see info on projects we're adding for Summer and Fall 2012. Recently, we've posted the projects for period 11 in Ten Sleep, WY at Circle J Ranch, period 12 in Lampe, MO at Lives Under Construction, and period 13 in Eva, TN at Lakeshore UM Assembly. We're adding projects regularly now, as they are ready to go, so please have a look to see where you can help these agencies in need.
NOMADS please check your Friday Oct 7th evening email with signup instructions for using our new project management software to signi up for our Spring 2012 projects, which are now available. Instructions and a list of the Spring projects are also posted in the member's area under the heading PROJECT INFORMATION.
Our Spring 2012 projects (for periods 5, 6 and 7) which run from April through May, will be available for signups during the first week of October. Instructions on using our new Project Signup software will be emailed to you or posted on the website for everyone when the projects are ready to go. We're changing how this is done, so you'll really need to read the instructions this time. We are going to ask that leaders sign up for a project before we open it up for others to join the team.
