Right Holding of Yearly Meeting Committee

Friends at Yearly Meeting 2015

is assessing the effects of changing our annual meeting from January to July and whether future changes should be considered.


The Yearly Meeting Minute 17.48 asked our Committee to consider the following matters:

1.  Feedback from the annual surveys that have been held after each meeting.

2.  Information on the number and range of participants, accommodation options and impact on Young Friends, Junior Young Friends and children’s programs.

3. The impact of the change on the administrative aspects of YM (financial, reporting, etc.)

4. The view of Regional Meetings about hosting, and especially from Tasmania Regional Meeting about their experiences of hosting more often.

The committee has been considering these questions and talking with others within our Yearly Meeting to find out more about the impact of the change of date of our annual Yearly Meeting from January to July.
We are not yet at a stage where we can make any recommendations. We are hoping that we can hear from more Friends by having Regional Meetings organise feedback, possibly via workshops, in 2018-19. Watch this space for more information after Yearly Meeting!
