During the meeting, members reviewed and accepted with minor changes, the Record of Decisions of the October 30-31, 2000, Meeting. They also finalized their Terms of Reference, shared information on the Federal Funding Study, Role of the Voluntary Sector Working Group on Financing and Funding and the National Survey on Giving, Volunteering and Participating and agreed to a sub-committee approach to further develop work-plans.

Members also spoke of the importance of having a common understanding/vision across dimensions and getting quickly to substantial discussions/investments and results. Before the next meeting, each sub-group is to begin to undertake their work. They also wanted the roles and responsibilities of sub-committee members and secretariat staff to be clearly defined.

The next meeting of the CJT and six sub-groups is scheduled for Jan 31- Feb 1, 2001. Members need to confirm the dates of future meetings that have been tentatively set as follows: February 26-27; April 2-3, May 14-15 and June 18-19, 2001.
