The Coordinating Committee (CC) supports and enriches the life of NPYM. It is the venue where
NPYM 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.
The Coordinating Committee handles decisions that do not involve changes to policy, that are
necessary to carry out the work of the Yearly Meeting, and that do not require full NPYM attention at
Annual Session. The first step is to determine if the decision should be referred elsewhere. Discernment is
necessary to identify which decisions can be handled at Coordinating Committee and which decisions
rightly belong at Annual Session or in an NPYM standing committee, Monthly Meeting, or Quarterly
