Friends General Conference

About the Representatives to Friends General Conference Central Committee

The representatives to Friends General Conference (FGC) Central Committee are expected to attend the annual Central Committee meeting, and to serve on at least one program or administrative committee. They keep FGC informed of the needs and concerns of New York Yearly Meeting, and inform New York Yearly Meeting about FGC activities. To the extent possible, all members of Central Committee are expected to promote and participate in the Annual Gathering, and other programs of FGC. It is hoped that as well as giving of their time and energies to support the work of FGC, they will be able to make financial contributions. However, limited financial resources should not be a barrier to Central Committee service.
