What It Is

LEYM holds a Representative Meeting in the spring to handle business that has arisen since the previous Annual Sessions and to consider and season matters for the next Annual Sessions. Representative Meeting may make decisions concerning any matter except those specifically reserved for Annual Sessions (see Policies & Procedures Manual), and may forward any matter to Annual Sessions with a recommendation.

Who Attends

Participants at 2012 LEYM Representatives Meeting

Meetings are asked to appoint two representatives so that at least a few Friends from each meeting will attend, participate, and report back. A representative comes with knowledge about his or her meeting and its concerns, but is not bound by instructions. Representatives need to be open to the leadings of the Spirit, just as they would be in any Quaker business meeting. Members of standing committees and officers of the yearly meeting are expected to attend. In addition, any member or attender within LEYM who wishes may participate.

When and Where it is Held

LEYM’s Clerk sets the time and place for Representative Meeting. Currently, it is held on a Saturday at the end of March or beginning of April. It is hosted by different monthly meetings different years. If your meeting is interested in hosting the next one, please contact the Yearly Meeting Clerk.
