The Alternate Membership Pathways Working Group invites you to save the date for a weekend of exploration around the concept and process of membership within New York Yearly Meeting and the Religious Society of Friends. Together we will learn about the history of membership structures, share our experiences, joys, and concerns therein, and work to envision additional, alternative pathways. Centered in worship, this weekend will give participants the chance to discern how things are and dream together about where we might want to be. You are welcome no matter the length or depth of your experience, whether you are a young Friend, an older Friend or a person who is still deciding whether you are a Friend at all. Your perspective and stories matter to us and will be used to inform the Working Group's efforts moving forward.

Registration will open on the Powell House website soon and we'll let you know when it does! If you are planning to attend, interested in attending, or if you have questions, please reach out directly to

Childcare, scholarships and financial assistance will be available.
