The Friends General Conference Central Committee, meeting annually in October, is solely responsible for making final policy decisions affecting the FGC organization and program, approving the annual budget, and making changes in the corporate by-laws. It is composed of persons appointed by affiliated yearly meetings, monthly meetings and associations and of persons co-opted by Central Committee action.

Friends General Conference (FGC), with Divine guidance, nurtures the spiritual vitality of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) by providing programs and services for Friends, meetings, and seekers. Through the work of our staff and the representatives appointed by our member yearly meetings (15), fellowship (1), and independently affiliated monthly meetings (12), these programs and services are made possible. The committees of Central Committee (CC) (the governing body of FGC) have come into being through discernment of needs and leadings and continue to evolve and transform as those needs change.
