Bridge Contacts help PYM Friends connect with the movement of Spirit across our extended community. They keep current with the news, events, leadings, and activities in our yearly meeting network, and connect their constituencies to it. Bridge Contacts proactively identify opportunities for collaboration and make introductions. This work of paying attention to “how Spirit is moving among us” is critical to our healthy functioning as a connected yearly meeting, and so every constituency in the yearly meeting is encouraged to appoint a Bridge Contact.
Examples of possible constituencies with Bridge Contacts include: monthly meetings, quarterly meetings, worship groups, committees, collaboratives, and Young Adult Friends.
Bridge Contacts are in the care of their appointing constituency. At this time there is not an identified staff contact.
