Support from the Yearly Meeting Staff

Your Yearly Meeting staff work all year round on a wide range of projects supporting the life and ministry of our local meetings, and of Friends throughout our region. 

Please let us know as soon as possible about emerging needs of your local meeting, committee, or more informal ministry team so that we can best assess whether and how staff can be helpful in providing resources for your important work. While we can't dedicate time and resources to every request, we'd be happy to explore with you what support is available, and what we could plan to be helpful moving forward.

Contact the office to begin the conversation.
