The Permanent Board serves as the Yearly Meeting’s decision-making body between Yearly Meeting Sessions. Briefly, it implements decisions and policy made by Sessions. It also acts upon matters where, in the opinion of the Board, a decision cannot await Sessions. Otherwise, its role is to “season” issues which come to its attention, presenting recommendations to Sessions if appropriate. Up to 50 Friends nominated from throughout New England carry this work through prayerful discernment. Visitors are encouraged. If you would like to explore serving, please contact the Nominating Committee.
