Indicators of progress
Ward and stake leaders will be able to measure progress by monitoring these key indicators from the Quarterly Report:
Endowed members with a current temple recommend
Sacrament meeting attendance
Members who submitted names of ancestors for temple ordinances
The specific actions members should take to help individuals and families participate in the work of salvation are an important part of the area plan.
Leaders: Members of coordinating, stake, and ward councils should prayerfully develop specific steps they will take to accomplish the area vision, priorities, and goals. Leaders are encouraged to prayerfully consider specific names of individuals to focus their attention on.
Individuals and Families: Individuals and families are encouraged to set specific measurable goals on a small pocket card to help them focus their efforts on the three priorities of the area plan in their personal lives.
Accountability and Follow Up: Area Seventies encourage stake presidents to develop meaningful ways to implement the area plan and continually follow up with them on their progress. Stake presidents in turn encourage bishops to work with priesthood and organization leaders in developing ways to implement the area plan and likewise follow up and encourage them.
