The Trinity would also provide a reliable source of the main points of agreement in the conference, for all groups, namely those who participated on the day and the others who were absent.
The Trinity is also tasked with ensuring that the next Leadership Conference provides members of the COL with the opportunity to showcase the contributions of their groups to the agreed priority, and the space to debate and select the next priority for the forthcoming year. Plus address other relevant matters identified for consideration.
