Prologue
A third letter from Mr. E.W. Netten of Price Waterhouse and Co. was presented as follows:
"In accordance with your request, we are pleased to restate and amplify the comments, made in our report of May 5, 1967, relating to the establishment of an Executive Committee of the National Executive Council.
As the ongoing interim unit acting for the General Synod between Synod meetings, the NEC is responsible for policy direction of the national affairs of the Church. Yet the NEC meets no more often than quarterly, and as many as six months may elapse between its meetings (for example, we are told that it will not meet between May and November this year).
Thus the question has arisen as to how best to deal with matters which are the prerogative of the NEC to decide and which come up for quick action in the three-to-six month interval between its meetings. Such matters could, of course, be held over until the next Council meeting, but it can be expected that the lengthy delays which sometimes would ensue could prevent the Church from acting expeditiously on important decisions, and thereby would prove detrimental to its interests. Nor it is really practical for the members of NEC to be polled individually on such matters by mail or telephone.
It is quite possible for the NEC to devolve to the Primate the responsibility for taking decisions on these matters whenever, in his judgement, delay until the next NEC meeting could be inimical to the Church's cause. Indeed, we understand that this is the practice currently followed on an informal basis. However, from an organizational point of view, we do not believe this to be the best long-term solution, since it places an undue burden of responsibility upon the shoulders of one man.
We conclude now - as we did last May - that there is much logic in creating a small Executive Committee of the NEC which would be delegated the authority to consider and decide matters, normally handled by the NEC, requiring prompt action and decision. The Committee would function only for this defined purpose. It would not operate as an "inner cabinet," nor would it conduct business which the NEC is capable of undertaking itself. It would be accountable to the NEC, and all its decisions would be subject to review and ratification at the next NEC meeting.
So that it could convene readily on short notice at the call of the Chair, its membership should not be large. It might consist of:
Voting...The Primate (Chairman)
.........The Prolocutor of The Lower House
.........Two or three active members of the NEC (preferably including the Chairmen of the Program Committee and the Administration and Finance Committee, if they are members of the NEC, or can be co-opted thereto.)
Non-voting...Executive Director
.............General Secretary
.............Director of Administration and Finance
With its membership composed along these lines, the Committee would be small enough to be effective in expediting its agenda, yet broad enough to be representative of both the policy making and implementation areas of program and administration.
We would be pleased to discuss this subject further with you if you wish."
On motion of Chancellor R.H. Soward, seconded by the Very Rev. F.R. Gartrell, the two aforementioned letters were received.
Moved by Chancellor R.H. Soward, seconded by Dr. E.W. Balcom,
That there be appointed an Executive Committee of the NEC, consisting of:
Voting members...The Primate
.................The Prolocutor
.................The Deputy Prolocutor
.................Two other members of the NEC
.................The General Secretary of General Synod
Non-voting...The Executive Director of Program
.............The Director of Administration and Finance
Text
Amendment
That this matter be referred to the committee consisting of the officers so named and the two people selected by the Primate, to bring in suggested specific terms of reference for such an Executive Committee, to report to the next meeting of the NEC.
The amendment was then CARRIED.
Notes
In response to the question as to who would be taking care of the Primate's responsibilities while he is attending the Lambeth Conference during the summer of 1968, His Grace stated that, because all the other bishops also would be at Lambeth, he had asked Canon R.R. Latimer to be responsible for correspondence and for any matters that require immediate attention. Although Canon Latimer was to have assumed his duties as the Anglican Executive Commissioner on June 1, 1968, he had agreed to continue these additional responsibilities until September 1, for which the Primate expressed his gratitude.

Notes
The Rev. Dr. Karen Egan and Ms. Judith Moses spoke to General Synod 2019 resolution C005 – Constitutional Review (as amended). Council would not be voting on the resolution itself, but dealing with what it asks them to do. Dr. Egan and Ms. Moses requested the resolution be passed to the Governance Working Group (GWG). The GWG is the servant of the Council to make sure that the information it has is sufficient for a good decision-making process. It is chaired by Chancellor Canon David P. Jones and is made up of Canon Clare Burns, Ms. Ann Chaplin, Ms. Cynthia Haines Turner, the Ven. Alan Perry, and the Ven. Dr. Michael Thompson (ex officio). The work that the GWG will undertake on this resolution will be done in consultation with CoGS and the Strategic Planning Working Group.
