Seeking Joy as Quaker Business People
Finding the balance between challenge and opportunity
When we approach business as ministry or witness, where do we encouter spiritual joy among practical challenges? Come join us as we delve into the business of work and joy.
The Conference includes worship and activities to help us get to know each other as we continue to build a community of Quaker business people. Those who are involved in or interested in business are encouraged to attend.
The Quakers and Business Group is open to all Quakers who have a heart and mind for business, and who are interested or are already applying Quaker principles to their work and life. Open to Gathering registrants and also those not staying for the Gathering.
The costs of the conference include
- Conference fee of $100 (financial aid is available)
- up to six pre-Gathering cafeteria meals
- on campus housing
On-campus housing is available to conference registrants regardless of whether they are staying for the FGC Gathering. A Friend registering for both events will be assigned the same room for both events.
See conference housing prices in the Early Arrival Room Fee table.
If you are bringing children eighth grade or younger, childcare is available during the conference. You will only need to pay for housing and meals for your child. If you have signed up for Quakers & Business and not the Gathering you will still need to fill out the parental permission form in order to utilize the Children’s Center during the pre-gathering times. Read more about childcare for pre-Gathering events.
Registration opens April 3 and closes June 10. Late fees begin June 1.
