These guidelines are not steadfast, but are intended to:
A. Spread the social workload around so all the burden isn’t placed on a few brethren
B. Keep officers on track in their preparation for the East. A small steady workload is far easier to handle than a pressured workload at JW and above.

(As always, this is open to discussion)
