Canadian Yearly Meeting is on its way and CYFYM Nominating Committee is hoping to have a head start this year. All in all, we’re in good shape, but there are a number of positions that we are looking to fill. All position terms are 2 years in length (those nominated this year will serve until the rise of meeting in 2016). Here is the list:
- Young Adult Friend Clerk
- Co-Recording Clerk
- Nominating Committee
- Education and Outreach Representative
- Sporadical Editor
A message from Ellen Helmuth after New Brunswick Monthly Meeting’s meeting for worship for business: some interest was expressed in making donations in memory of Isaac Miller, the Young Friend who passed away suddenly earlier this year. A few options were put forwards:
- NBMM is setting up the “Isaac Miller Memorial Fund”, which will support Quaker Youth and Quaker Youth Activities. They can accept cheques made out to “NBMM” (with a note specifying that it’s for the Memorial Fund) and sent to their Treasurer Lesley Read (contact the webminder for her address). Tax deductible receipts are available.
Isaac was an avid fan of skateboarding and film-making; a pair of local non-profits were suggested as well.
- Skateboard Fredericton, Inc.
520 Queen St.
- New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative
Charlotte St. Arts Centre
P.O. Box 1537

We’re working diligently to get past years docs up here as well.
CYM 2013 is underway in Kemptville and we now have our very own draft agenda!
It’s not CYM without tents 🙂
