A meeting of the NFN Steering Group was held at Friargate Meeting House, York, yesterday 6th July 2017.
Further details will follow but it was minuted, amongst other items, that:
- “7. Being a Quaker Recognised Body
Michael Wright has read to us the advantages of being a Quaker Recognised Body. We are pleased to learn that we need not restrict our membership to Quaker members and attenders. We ask Trevor to put our QRB status on our website.”
This recognition from being formerly a ‘Listed Quaker Group’ was approved by Meeting for Sufferings in April of this year.
The SG Meeting also confirmed the date and topic of next year’s annual conference and AGM at Woodbrooke as being from 9th – 11th March 2018 on ‘Quakers in 2033? Where are we heading?’
It was further agreed and minuted that the cost of the conference to participants in 2018 will be subsidised from our reserves at £199 per head to encourage attendance which we hope will exceed the 40 rooms to be provisionally booked. (The subsidy being approximately £25 per head and the net cost to participants £199).
