Good evening, friends:
Many of the usual reasons for not attending NYYM Summer Sessions fall away when it’s a virtual event!
Please consider registering and joining us on Sunday for Meeting for Discernment. Or register and then attend a Meeting for Business or two — and find out what NYYM does! Or! Register and attend Worship Sharing with f/Friends from across the region. Registration is Pay as Led!
So many reasons to register and join us. We would love to see you there.
NYYM Sessions Committee, clerk
“You only live once,
but if you do it right,
once is enough.”

This week's NYYM update is a special invitation to participate in all of the various aspects of Summer Sessions, starting on Sunday July 19. Here's another highlight of the gathering.
Yearly Meeting Business at Summer Sessions
The Quaker meeting for worship with a concern for business is an opportunity to live out Quakerism in a practical way; to discern and make decisions as a body, with integrity and faith. Everyone who wishes to attend is welcome. Register for Summer Sessions to get Zoom links and daily updates on the agenda.
To prepare for the meetings business at Summer Sessions this year, please read the Seasoned Business Items. Seasoned Business Items are items that the Clerk believes need a decision or need to be recorded in our minutes but do not require any consideration during the business session. Read a full explanation of "SBIs" here.
You can also prepare for business meeting by reading the Advance Documents. These are the reports, minutes, revisions, etc., that will be discussed at business meeting. You can see the planned agenda for all the business meetings, subject to change.
Please attend and please register! It helps with planning, and it gets you access to the Zoom links for everything. See the two-weeks-at-a-glance schedule to get a sense of Summer Sessions.
