New York Yearly Meeting, the Corporation
The Yearly Meeting is a corporation organized under the New York Religious Corporations Law. According to our By-Laws, the Trustees of our Yearly Meeting are “responsible for holding title to and administration of the properties, both real and personal, owned by the Corporation, and for the management of bequests and deeds of trust received by the Corporation in a fiduciary capacity.”
Our By-Laws state that the Trustees are appointed by the body of our Yearly Meeting in the following way:
The [body] shall appoint no fewer than five nor more than seven members of the [Yearly Meeting] to serve as Trustees of the Corporation. Appointment shall be for individual terms of five years each, with rotating dates of appointment so that one or two Trustees are appointed each year. Trustees are eligible for two successive reappointments of five years each. At any meeting of the [Yearly Meeting] the members may appoint Trustees to succeed those whose terms have expired, or to fill vacancies for unexpired terms.

- In 2016, the gathered body of the yearly meeting approved a proposal from the Trustees to redesignate the income from some Trustee-managed funds. Documents pertaining to these changes can be accessed through the links below.
