We will be gathering virtually

 

Announcing the Virtual NYYM Fall Sessions 2020: November 6th - 8th

 

Dear NYYM Friends:

 

Given the ongoing concerns of holding large in-person gatherings in the Time of COVID-19, and given the success of our virtual Summer Sessions, the NYYM Sessions Committee, working with the NYYM Clerk, Elaine Learnard, has approved holding our Fall Sessions virtually. We will meet over the weekend of Friday-Sunday, November 6-8, 2020. We will have time for worship, discernment, business, and social gathering. However, we will not provide time for committees to meet, opting instead to have breathing space between worship and business over the course of Fall Sessions.

 

Advance documents and a final schedule will be listed below as they become available.

 

We encourage all committees to work with the YM Staff to host their own committee zoom meetings well before Fall Sessions, so that any business they approve can be brought to the appropriate coordinating committee for seasoning and approval, also well before Fall Sessions.

 

You have probably noticed that our Fall Sessions will be just days after the General Election. Fall Sessions will be a time to gather together in waiting worship and for our hearts and minds to find peace among Friends. 

 

We strongly encourage you to pre-register by Monday, November 2nd, in order to receive the Fall Sessions zoom information. After the 2nd, it becomes more difficult to add you to the registration process and fill you in on the sessions information.

 

If you have not already filled out the Summer Sessions Evaluation Form, please do so! We trust your responses will help us refine and perfect our Fall Sessions.

 

Thank you,
Elaine Learnard, NYYM Clerk
Dawn Pozzi, NYYM Sessions Committee clerk

 

 

REGISTRATION is OPEN until MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND. Click here to register online!
