Diagram of Church Meetings

I was recently asked in a ward council meeting if there was a diagram or chart listing all of the Church meetings, their frequency, and who should attend. Example meetings would be teacher council meetings, ward council meetings, missionary coordination meeting, temple and family history council meetings, etc. Does such a thing exist?

I know they are all listed in the Handbook, but we were wondering if there was a visual representation of the list in the Handbook somewhere.

Have you looked at Handbook 2: 18.7?

Yes, but they are not all listed in the chart. Teacher Council, for example, isn't there. And I was looking for something a little more visually appealing than the chart in the Handbook.

Many of these meetings, like missionary coordination meeting and temple and family history coordination meeting, are only spelled out in Handbook 2 as "regularly". Others, like the ward council, "normally meets weekly but may meet less frequently". Some leaders may meet regularly in meetings not spelled out in the Handbook – for example, everyone involved in music in the ward might get together periodically to plan or receive training. And would presidency meetings be included? I think the intention in the Handbook is to allow wards and stakes to have flexibility according to the inspiration of the ward officers, so it would be hard to create a chart that applies to all wards.
