Lake Erie Yearly Meeting uses a manual of policies and procedures which outlines the way in which LEYM conducts business. It covers: the yearly meeting’s constituent bodies; how the yearly meeting makes decisions; the responsibilities of officers, other Friends, and committees; financial policies, practices, and forms; and LEYM’s publications, website, and database. Appendices include the history and objectives of LEYM; guidelines for business meeting; policies on care of children during LEYM sessions; and material on monthly meetings and individual membership.
LEYM’s Policies and Procedures Manual is available as a PDF file below. Please note that it is laid out with “mirror margins.” The expectation is that Friends, being concerned about the environment, will print it “back to back.” The odd-numbered pages have slightly wider margins on the left, the even-numbered on the right, to allow for either stapling down the left side or punching holes for a three-ring binder.
