Friends World Committee for Consultation

About Representatives to Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC)

And Friends World Committee for Consultation–Section of the Americas

The representatives act as liaison between the Yearly Meeting and FWCC. They carry Yearly Meeting concerns to FWCC and report back to the Yearly Meeting. This includes an annual written report.

Representatives should attend the annual meeting of the Section of the Americas. Each one is asked to serve on one of the Section’s committees, which meet at the time of the annual meeting and at other times as necessary. Representatives should attend and help in the planning of the annual regional conference, to which all interested Friends are invited. They are asked to make Friends in the Yearly Meeting aware of the need for funds to support FWCC’s work.

Those Friends appointed to attend the world plenary meetings should be prepared to report their experiences to groups in the New York Yearly Meeting area and others within reasonable travel distance.
