Clerks Meeting
Clerks met on Monday to work through an agenda that included some of the following:
  • Approved a recommendation that we use David Hansen for legal work for Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends with articles of incorporation, bylaws, and 501(c)3 application. This avoids potential conflicts of interest as Transition Team works with NWYM and SCYMF.
  • Is there something deeper that we need to be about? What is our particular calling in this time? What does it mean to be Quaker? What is it that’s really important to us?
  • We discussed how communication should work for meetings that choose to join SCYMF.
  • Starting up the task force on recording/licensing.
