If you are are yearly meeting clerk, we hope that you are planning to participate in this wonderful Opportunity. We would also like to extend the invitation to rising clerks -or- assistant clerks.  Past consultations have been spiritually sustaining for participants and that has had a ripple effect within the yearly meetings.  This year's consultation will be at the Cenacle Retreat Center in Chicago: http://www.cenaclesisters.org/chicago-retreat-conference-center/

Based on experience of the richness of sharing and support found by yearly meeting clerks at previous consultations, we will bring together clerks of independent, Conservative and FGC affiliated yearly meetings in an opportunity to hear and discuss each other’s joys, questions, and challenges of being faithful servant leaders.  It is not a heavily scheduled weekend; rather, it is an opportunity to worship, share and learn from each other. We have developed a tentative schedule, but be assured that we are prepared to alter it as we are led by the participants and the Spirit.

In Peace,
