About Personnel Committee
The Personnel Committee recommends staff appointments to the Yearly Meeting. In response to Yearly Meeting directives, it gives general guidance and support to the staff and helps in the Yearly Meeting’s relationships with the staff. The committee is asked to attend to working conditions, to performance, and to needs of the Yearly Meeting staff. The Committee provides guidance and support to staff and nurtures staff’s relationships with Friends in the Yearly Meeting.
The committee also writes, reviews, and amends the personnel policy and the various job descriptions. It makes and revises a salary guide and an annual salary schedule. It helps secure and supervise medical, disability, and retirement benefits for employees. The committee ensures that there are annual evaluations of the Yearly Meeting staff.
The Personnel Committee proposes a budget to cover the personnel expenses of the Yearly Meeting.
