Residential Weekend Retreat: Clerking in the 21st Century
Date: May 3-5, 2019
Location: Powell House, Old Chatham, NY


This weekend will provide opportunities for Young Adults at all phases of their Quakerdom to learn about clerking. Come if you know a lot, know a little, know nothing, or perhaps think you know something but aren't sure. We will hear from current and former Yearly Meeting, Monthly Meeting, Committee, and Youth clerks and discuss how traditional clerking translates into the 21st Century. At the end of this workshop, participants will know more about clerking and also have built skills to move into clerking roles. What does clerking look like during a committee meeting over video chat? What role does changing technology play in the way we conduct business? How do 21st Century mindsets align or misalign with traditional practices? Where do we go from here? Join us to answer these questions, enjoy the beauty of Powell House in the spring, and to build and deepen our skills in and knowledge of an important Quaker practice! Register here.
