- to report to the Anglican Communion by August 31, 2004, through the Task Team on Poverty and Trade, on the Anglican Church of Canada's contributions to development and poverty work to help give a complete picture of the Anglican Communion's efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals.

Ms. Mason, who is retiring after 40 years of service to the Pension Plan, extended best wishes to Council and acknowledged that she will miss everyone. She has no doubts that the right choice was made when Council appointed Ms. Judy Robinson to be her successor.
