Assessment payments will be forwarded to the Central Church as noted below.


"1. The July 2007 assessment payments to the Central Church will be remitted at a special meeting of the Holy Synod of Bishops called in accordance with the Statute of the Orthodox Church in America.

"2. The August 2007 assessment payments to the Central Church will be remitted after the release to all Church members of all reports of the special investigation commission and when the commission renews its unhindered investigation, as directed by the Metropolitan Council.

"3. The October 2007 assessment payments to the Central Church will be remitted when a clear plan for convening an All-American Council in 2008 is announced."

"If one or any of the aforementioned points are not fulfilled the diocese will place all assessment payments to the Central Church is escrow until the requested actions are fulfilled."
