Quaker consultations on “Simplifying Committee Structures”

April 4, 2023 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Simplifying Committee Structures

(for anyone who is interested)

We’ll talk about how we can simplify our meetings by deconstructing traditional roles and starting, instead, with Friends’ gifts and leadings and a list of necessary responsibilities. We’ll also look at the differences between committees, working groups, task groups, and short-term-volunteer roles and how each can be used to simplify meetings and reenergize Friends. This conversation will also touch on how and why meetings might transition from being pastored to being un-pastored.

Tuesday, April 4: 5pm West Coast – 8pm East Coast – 10am Wednesday in Sydney, Australia
