NPYM Annual Session 2020.
Annual Session will be online this year, as a "Virtual Gathering."
In these challenging times one of the greatest gifts we can offer each other is community. As we are cloistered at home, our online community becomes an important and necessary option.
We expect most aspects of Annual Session can be done in some fashion online, and our planning committee is in the process of making this a reality.
We have done a survey of all NPYM attenders to conclude the best approaches that work for the widest online audience.
There will be a pre-registration signup for interest group submissions, Quaker Fair submissions, worship group leaders and online technical support.
There will be weekly online worship groups during May and June as a prelude to the Virtual Annual Session.
There will be evening interest groups in the two weeks preceding Annual Session.
There will be an abbreviated registration process, with very little cost (to cover expenses of Zoom accounts and our paid employees.)
For a full description, schedule and registration information go to as.npym.org.
