Member and Attender log-in:

Some items, such as newsletters, meeting minutes, and clerk and committee member names and contact information, are only visible when logged in. You may already have a login if you have ever corresponded with FGC. But you will still need to request access to the Northern Yearly Meeting site.

On the Northern Yearly Meeting website, click “Sign Up for Online Meeting Access” above the blue menu bar.

  • Enter your e-mail and FGC password if you know it.
  • If you don’t know your password or you’re not sure if you have an account with FGC, go to Fill out the form and click “E-mail new password.” If you don’t have an account you’ll get an error message saying that. Otherwise check your email and click one of the links to reset your password. Go back to the Madison Friends Meeting website and click “Sign Up for Online Meeting Access” and log in.
  • If you don’t have an account, click “Sign Up for Online Meeting Access” and then “Create One Now,” enter your information and preferences, and click “Create new account.”
  • Your request must be approved. The NYM Web Clerk should receive an email asking to approve your request, a simple process. Feel free to contact [email protected] if you don’t hear anything within a few days, or if you need access right away. If the Web Clerk does not recognize you they may contact you for more details. Please don’t take it personally – we are a large Meeting!

Committee Sites

Your committee may have a dedicated site for committee work and archives, which is available only to members of your committee. You will need a log in to the NYM site, and also be added to your committee site by whomever is administering users for that committee.

Log in to the NYM website and click your name at the very top right. You will see a list of sites for which you have access. Click the committee site and voila, there you are!

To move between the main NYM site and a committee site, click your name at the top right of the screen again, and click the links.
