How to track ward council meetings, agendas, and tasks - all in one place.

Welcome to Your Ward Council Hub

This Coda doc is a template - feel free to make a copy and customize it for your ward council. If you have questions, you can contact me at .
Get started in 3 easy steps:
Copy template
Customize it to fit your ward council's needs. Add/delete pages, embed a Google Sheet in a page, create more tables to track something, etc. The sky’s the limit!
Share your copy of the doc with ward council members (click share in the upper right of the doc).
A ward council is crucial to every ward’s success. The emphasizes the purpose of the ward council: “The ward council seeks to help all ward members build spiritual strength, receive saving ordinances, keep covenants, and become consecrated followers of Jesus Christ.”
But if you’ve served on a ward council, you know this can sometimes be tricky. Everyone on the ward council is already very busy, so sometimes staying organized can be a challenge.
The goal of this Coda doc is to lighten the burden of administration, freeing your ward council up to focus on what’s more important — ministering to individuals and families in your ward. It serves as a single hub to track meetings, notes, and tasks.
Here’s a quick tour of the doc:
→ Run your meeting out of this page. Everyone from the ward council is invited to add discussion topics.
→ Keep track of your tasks.
→ Assignments and visitors for upcoming meetings.
→ A list of the organizations in your ward. The organizations listed in this table will show up in the dropdown lists in .
→ A weekly prep email that gets sent to the ward council every Thursday morning. To turn it on, type /automations to open the Automations panel. Connect your Gmail, add the To recipients, and turn on the automation. Your ward council will then get a weekly email!
