New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Chapter 8: Revision of Discipline

Proposals for change of this book of Faith and Practice may originate in a monthly meeting, a quarterly meeting, or in the Yearly Meeting itself. A proposal from a monthly meeting, after receiving the approval of its quarterly meeting, will be transmitted by the quarterly meeting to the Yearly Meeting for final action. In any case, the proposed changes must be given preliminary approval and be published in the minutes of the Yearly Meeting. Only then may final action be taken on them at the next succeeding Yearly Meeting.
