“The executive committee, having heart the progress report rendered by the representatives of the Keren Hayesod and the Jewish National Fund on the subject of widening the basis of representation on the governing bodies of the United Palestine Appeal, resolves that the executive committee views with favor the inclusion on the governing bodies of the U.P.A. of representatives of Jewish communities, welfare funds and federations up to one-third of the membership of such governing bodies by a procedure to be determined in consultation with recognized leaders of communities and welfare funds over the nation.
