Q- When you select the “gear” icon to access “My Account,” you have the opportunity to fill in one date for each of the seven roles. Are these to be used specifically with a project? For example, in “Active Listening,” you are required to be the Topicsmaster for a meeting. Should you only indicate fulfillment of that role for an assigned project?
A- No. You are not required to track your roles on Base Camp. Base Camp will not associate a role with a specific project, even if that role is required in the project assignment.
When you record your meeting roles on Base Camp, they appear on your profile page for members of your home club to see. You are encouraged to update these dates each time you complete a role, but it is not a requirement. Tracking your meeting role dates will help your vice president education verify that you have fulfilled the meeting roles required to complete Level 3. The VPE must confirm—by their presence at the meeting or through confirmation of an officer who was present—that a member served in a role as part of a project assignment. The Table Topicsmaster role for “Active Listening” is an excellent example of this responsibility. The VPE is responsible for confirming the completion of all components of a project assignment in order for members to advance to the next level in their path.
Please note that the process used for verifying meeting roles is at the clubs discretion. Clubs can continue to use the same verification processes they use today.
The meeting role fields on My Account can be seen as an additional checkpoint and we do encourage members to record their most recent meeting roles on their Base Camp profile. For more information, please see the World Headquarters webinar on Tracking Meeting roles and review the Meeting Role Requirements FAQ available on the Tutorials and Resource page on Base Camp.
