For more than 100 years faithful women have served the church in Parish, Diocesan and National levels. Upon integration, the National Church and Anglican Women entered into certain agreements. We ask the church to honour these intentions and practices. We request that any new structures provide access for church women, financial resources and staff assistance.'"

Toronto - "Linking Anglican women, yesterday, today and tomorrow" is the theme of a major event in the life of the Church this year. The Bridges Conference, as it is called, will bring together three women from each of the Church's dioceses, members of the Women's Unit, four ecumenical partners, four overseas partners, and the women members of the General Synod Council on Native Affairs. The Conference will be held at Mount Carmel centre in Niagara Falls, Ontario from October 24 to 27. The Mount Carmel centre is wheelchair accessible. This year is the centennial of organized women's work in the Anglican Church of Canada. The planning committee for the Conference have stated, "Although we don't intend to dwell on the past, we do intend to collect it, enjoy it and celebrate it." This "collecting" of the past is to be accomplished by asking each diocesan delegation to delve into the history of women's work is their area and to develop an imaginative presentation in written, dramatised, audio visual or fabric art form for the Conference.
For the present and future dimensions of the Conference, the program will help women to look at their lives today and vision the future with an emphasis on "bridging." By this is meant the building of personal links between individuals by sharing experience. As one member of the planning committee put it, "One person's present is another's past or future."
It is hoped that each diocese will form a selection committee to aid in the choosing of delegates. The hope is that this committee will make the opportunity of attending widely known so that "women can declare their interest, even though they are not people whose names would usually come to mind." It is suggested that the Anglican Church Women (ACW) diocesan president be one of the three, along with one woman who is outside the ACW structure and one other woman. A travel pool will be used to equalize costs for all dioceses. There will be a national subsidy of $100 towards an expected cost of $500 per delegate.
