Quaker Exhibits and Presentations


The deadline has passed to submit your request to make such a Quaker Organization Presentation.

National and regional Quaker organizations will make scheduled afternoon presentations.    We are able to provide digital projectors for these presentations if the person giving the presenatation attends an AV training on June 29 or 30, and if you ask for a digital projector when completing your request form.  Gathering staff will inform you by June 15 of the time and date of your presentation.  Due to a limited number of time slots, we may not be able to accommodate all requests.

Why sign up in advance?

  • The online and paper hand-outs available at the Gathering will include a hand-out listing names, times and brief descriptions of all Quaker Organization presentations. 
  • Your event will be included in the Daily Sheet provided to all adult registrants when they check in.  The Daily Sheets list all pre-scheduled events.
  • Signing up in advance means that you will know by June 15 exactly which day and time your presentation will happen. 

You may choose to not sign up in advance and instead to sign up for a room and time after you arrive at the Gathering.  Events scheduled in advance may not be announced in the Daily Bulletin; events scheduled after arrival at the Gathering may be announced in the Daily Bulletin. 

Tuesday Evening Interest Groups

The deadline has now passed for 2014 Tuesday evening Interest Group proposals.


Exhibits by Quaker-related organizations, communities, schools or interest groups will be displayed by advance arrangement:  complete the Exhibit Registration Form.  Reservations are only complete when payment has been received. Exhibit space is limited and may sell out, however, in 2014 we do not expect to fill the exhibit space before the May 31 reservation deadline. We will process paid-in-full advance reservations on a first-come, first-served basis in the order that they are completed. All exhibit space will be for freestanding tabletop or floor exhibits, possibly with limited electrical outlets available. No exhibit may exceed 6 linear feet. The deadline for requesting exhibit space is May 31. Nothing may be sold in the Exhibits area. Please do not solicit donations for items included in an exhibit. If you are interested in selling goods, please see information on consignment reservations.

You may set up your exhibit any time after 2 pm on Sunday June 29.  While exhibitors are responsible for setting up and taking down their exhibits, an Exhibit Coordinator will be available to answer questions as you set up your table/space. Blue painters' tape only may be used for hanging signs from tables.

Please be aware that when the building is open, the exhibit area will not be supervised. Any and all items in the display are the exhibitor’s responsibility.
