 The Yearly Meeting comprises the members of its constituent Monthly Meetings who come together annually to explore and pursue their common purposes. The work of the Yearly Meeting is conducted by its committees and corporately during the annual gathering, which is also referred to as the Yearly Meeting session. While the Yearly Meeting’s officers and committees broadly parallel those of a Monthly Meeting, additional officers and committees are responsible for the conduct of the annual gathering. Further discussion of the organization of Yearly Meeting appears in Part VI.
