The conference Planning Group met for a final time in Vancouver in mid-September to reflect on the conference and to bring the financial picture up to date. When all aspects were taken into account and all outstanding commitments met, there remained a surplus of $7000. After thoughtful discussion, and with an aim to respecting the intentions of the conference and to furthering work recognized there, it was decided to disburse these funds as follows:
.Refunds of registration fees to five people: $1750
.To the Rudolf Steiner Centre, Vancouver (for meeting space for the Planning Group): $500
.Seed funds toward the 2010 Conference in Iceland: $1200
.To ISIS, toward continuing work in Russia: $1000
.To the fund for Meta Williams Healing Centre initiative (through ISIS): $500
.To the Goetheanum: $1000
.To the Anthroposophical Society in Canada: $1000
The balance went toward the costs of disbursing the above funds.
We are grateful for the participation of each of you who came to Whitehorse and to those who supported the conference in other ways.
Edna Cox, for the Planning Group
