  • formation programs
  • suggest styles and techniques of
  • teaching
  • recommend resources and
  • bibliography
  • and may also evaluate processes of
  • formation used on local levels, and
  • suggest improvements.

10
  • In situations where there is lack of
  • personnel prepared for formation at
  • the local level, several options are
  • possible
  • a) A Formation Program held in
  • common with several near-by
  • Fraternities may be organized

  • b) a travelling Formation Team
  • might be responsible for the
  • local Formation until a
  • Formation Team is organized
  • c) a program to train Formation
  • Teams may be established.

  • 3. Where these or similar alternative types
  • of formation are used, there must be no
  • minimizing of the fundamental
  • relationship between the candidate and
  • the local Fraternity to which he/she
  • belongs.
  • The candidate must always be
  • an active part of the local Fraternity, and
  • the Fraternity must always be an
  • important agent in the candidates
  • formation.
