2018 RepCom Reports and Minutes

Pacific Yearly Meeting’s 2018 Representative Committee meeting (“RepCom”) took place March 2-4, 2018, at Orange Grove Friends Meeting, Pasadena, CA, USA. It was co-hosted by Orange Grove and Santa Monica Monthly Meetings.

This page contains reports and minutes from the 2018 meeting.  For general information about Representative Committee and links to records from other years’ meetings, see the RepCom pages.

For a summary of some of the highlights from RepCom 2018, here is a sample report that one Representative gave at his Meeting’s business meeting the week after.  If you are a Representative yourself, you might draw on this example in preparing your own report to your Monthly Meeting or Worship Group.

For details of the meeting, see the RepCom 2018 Minutes Packet below.  The packet includes all of the advance committee and officer reports as well as minutes from the oral presentations at the meeting.

Clerk’s Call and Advance Materials

Most committee reports and other materials in preparation for RepCom were collected into a single PDF file, RepCom 2018 Packet of Advance Materials (a few stragglers did not make it in).  All of these reports (including the stragglers, but not the Clerk’s Call) are now included as attachments in the Minutes Packet below, so you’re better off seeking them there.  Or, if you really just want an individual report, you will find it below under Committee and Officer Reports.

The following are the advance materials that are not in the Minutes Packet:

    • Due to a technical glitch, we are unable to post the finalized minutes at this time, but the differences are minor.  We hope to have finalized minutes posted in early May.

Committee and Officer Reports

Written reports issued in preparation for RepCom are posted here.  They are sorted alphabetically by committee/officer.  All of these reports are also included as attachments in the Minutes Packet, so you’re probably better off seeking them there unless you really just want an individual report.
