I first posted about transfer day back in June of 2014. At that time transfers were 9 weeks apart. At that time it was thought that it was efficient to have transfer days at the same frequency that Missionaries start and end at the MTC. Missionaries enter the MTC for a 9 week course. With 9 week transfers only one set of Missionaries is in the MTC at any one time, thus there only needs to be one set of Thai teaching instructors.
This circumstance created some hardship for the mission. 9 weeks was a long time between transfers.
During the transfer meeting I make a short presentation - usually some information related to reimbursements etc. It is very similar to a Boeing Management briefing (Powerpoint charts and all)like I used to give.

Thus the reason for the crush around the table after the meeting is over. I do enjoy working with these wonderful missionaries. They truly are on the Lord's errand.
