The Coordinating Committee supports and enriches the life of NPYM. It is the venue where Standing Committees and Monthly Meetings share about their work and inspiration. The committee identifies and links converging and emerging issues, and offers support to groups within NPYM. In addition, the committee provides support and oversight to NPYM Standing Committees. CC meetings are meetings for worship with a concern for business, and members participate in discernment and decision-making according to the good order of Friends, under the leading of the Spirit. All members of CC bring their experience from their committees and Monthly Meetings as they share together in the work on behalf of NPYM.
Hello members of the NPYM Coordinating Committee.
Your Executive Committee has met three times since we last convened. We furthered the nominations process, clarified signatures on our bank and investment accounts, conducted evaluations on our employees, and, most importantly, decided that our 2021 Annual Session will be virtual.
The plan is to have 2022 at the University of Montana, 2023 at Western Oregon University in conjunction with FGC, and 2024 back at University of Montana.
Our next Coordinating Committee meeting is scheduled for March 20 from 9 AM to noon PST.
Yours in Unity,
Coordinating Committee Clerk
