10.    The Appropriate Use of a Summary Type of Index

  The use of a summary type of index is very helpful in fulfilling the goals of Action Motions 2K10.
  The summary type of index is relatively easy to compile if the motion is written in the suggested style for Action Motions 2K10. Each of the section headlines indexed. Once the index is complete it should serve almost as an executive summary of the motion. The summary type of index should be written in a manner that entices the reader to read the entire motion. 

Example of the Summary Type of Index
