Mrs. W.G. Waugh spoke about the two resolutions being presented at this time. She referred Synod to the Reports of Anglican Church Women, and highlighted the ways in which their work is to be picked up after integration to ensure the continuance of valid ACW concerns.
1. within the terms of their original purpose, authority for the use of the Anglican Church Women Trust and Reserve Funds be transferred to the Administration and Finance Committee, and
2. the non-operating funds of Anglican Church Women be maintained as separate accounts under the authority and direction of the Administration and Finance Committee, with annual reports of the operation of the funds being made to the National Executive Council.
THAT this General Synod authorize the publication of the Living Message from January 1, 1974, at least until December 31, 1975, and
THAT before that date evaluation be made and exploration carried out by the Program Committee as to possible new directions in which it can develop (explorations to include newsletters to particular constituencies and devotional resources).
