Welcomes the report in Book 4A of the General Synod Preparatory Material describing the National Insurance Program sponsored by the General Synod Office and operated collaboratively with the Dioceses of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle and Tasmania who are the current members.
Notes that this National Insurance Program has been developed to maximise economies of scale in the areas of insurance premium and policy coverage, and that membership is open to all Dioceses
(i) Welcomes the National Insurance Program Initiative as a sign in the Australian Church of a commitment to mutual cooperation.
(ii) Recognises that initiatives by several smaller and rural dioceses working together through a common broker has proved also to be a beneficial way of cooperation.
