NYYM Sections

Sections — New York Yearly Meeting's committees are organized into three sections. Each section has a coordinating committee that coordinates the work of the committees in its section. The sections are:

  • General Services—coordinates the administrative functions and activities of the yearly meeting organization.
  • Ministry—coordinates the work of the committees concerned with various aspects of the yearly meeting's spiritual life.
  • Witness—coordinates the work of the committees concerned with the yearly meeting's social witness in the world.

Meetings for Discernment. Meetings for Discernment and the Meetings for Discernment Steering Committee are not under the care of any section, but stand alone as bodies under the care of the yearly meeting as a whole.
