At the February 9, 2010 Diocesan Council Meeting, Bishop Michael Ingham informed council that the Diocesan Council for the Episcopal Diocese of Taiwan under the leadership of The Right Reverend David Jung-Hsin Lai voted at their last meeting to extend the diocesan partnership with New Westminster for another 5 years.
Bishop Michael made the announcement at the beginning of the monthly meeting.
After the agenda for the evening was accomplished Bishop Michael asked the council to make a motion in response to the Diocese of Taiwan's offer to extend the partnership.
It was moved, seconded and unanimously agreed that the Diocese of New Westminster extend its partnership with the Diocese of Taiwan for another 5 years but that this partnership would not preclude other diocesan partnerships if the opportunities arise.
