How Friends Get Involved

Committee members are appointed by the councils, which may request help from Nominating Council in making these appointments if desired.

Friends interested in serving on committees may complete a profile in PYM Connect, which feeds the Skills and Gifts Pool used by the councils to find appropriate members. Additionally, Friends who have relevant skills and experience and are interested in service on a particular committee are invited to inform the appropriate council know of their willingness to serve.

Committees are expected to prepare communications about the progress, achievements, discoveries, and concerns of their work so that others in the yearly meeting community can be aware of it. The contact information for the clerk or other designated contact person will be public so that any Friend in our yearly meeting can be in touch with the committee.
