Each year, Yearly Meeting appoints Friends to serve in different ways at the event. It also appoints people to serve on committees and groups through the year.

Committee to Examine Minutes (Dots and Commas)

You can still nominate Friends to serve on Dots and Commas (the Committee to Examine minutes) by completing the online form. This committee checks the minutes at the close of each session and corrects small errors. The committee has to be appointed at the first session of Yearly Meeting. To suggest a Friend to serve on this committee please fill in this short form.

Yearly Meeting Nominating Group

Nominations to this group are open! You can nominate Friends online now via the form here, or you can do so at Yearly Meeting.

The Yearly Meeting Nominating Group finds Friends to serve on Central Nominations Committee and the Yearly Meeting Committee on Clerks and brings these names to the following Yearly Meeting. Service is normally for one year. The process is explained in section 3 of Agenda and notes and the closing date is 6 May at 12:00.

Names brought to Yearly Meeting for Appointment

These names can be found here (downloads a .doc file). The list will be regularly updated. These names are only added after a careful and prayerful process. If you see a problem with the service of any of the Friends named please contact Zoe Prosser.

Meeting for Sufferings

Nominations received to date from area meetings and other Quaker bodies for representatives and alternates for 2018-2012 can be seen here. If you see any mistakes or missing names, please ask your area meeting clerk to contact Graham Spackman on
