Announcing the Virtual NYYM Fall Sessions 2020

 

Dear NYYM: Given the ongoing concerns of holding large in-person gatherings in the Time of COVID-19, and given the success of our virtual Summer Sessions, the NYYM Sessions Committee, working with the NYYM Clerk, Elaine Learnard, has approved holding our Fall Sessions virtually also, over the weekend of Friday-Sunday, November 6-8, 2020. We will have time for worship, discernment, business, and social gathering. Because of the nature of zoom meetings, we will not however provide time for committees to meet, opting instead to have breathing space between worship and business over the course of Fall Sessions.

 

In fact, we encourage all committees to work with the YM Staff to host their own committee zoom meetings well before Fall Sessions, so that any business they approve to be brought before the Yearly Meeting can be brought first to the appropriate coordinating committee for seasoning and approval, also well before Fall Sessions.

 

If you have not already filled out the Summer Sessions Evaluation Form, please do so! We trust your responses will help us refine and perfect our Fall Sessions.

Thank you,
NYYM; Elaine Learnard, Clerk
NYYM Sessions Committee; Dawn Pozzi, clerk

 

 

Registration will be available beginning Friday, September 25th
