NYM Clerking Workshop

Northern Yearly Meeting Clerking Workshop: Clerk Panels and Breakout Rooms

Friday, April 23 - 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Saturday, April 24 - 10:00 - 11:30 am & 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Each workshop session covers different aspects of clerking and is organized as a “stand alone” learning opportunity. Zoom attendance by all is encouraged as we hope every Friend can benefit from learning more about the role of clerking in our Meetings and committees.

After a brief welcome by the facilitator and introduction of panelists and topics, the four panelists will each speak for 10 minutes emphasizing their own experience and personal spiritual growth while serving as clerks. Breakout rooms for Q & A will be set up randomly for the remainder of the session.
