Registrars’ Report to Pacific Yearly Meeting’s 69th Annual Session

We wish to thank Brylie Oxley for his continuing efforts to improve the on-line registration system. This has been a time-saver for the registration team. We are planning on further improvements for the 2016 Annual Session. We welcome your comments.

Also thanks to Berkeley Meeting for ably providing contract registration services in close coordination with the Registrars.

The total number of persons attending this year is 303, not counting those who came just for the Meeting for Memorials. There are 234 attending for the full week, 39 attending for part of the week, and 30 day attenders. Among those attending for the full week, 195 are adults, 14 are teens aged 13-17, 19 are children 6 to 12 years old, and 6 are children 5 years old or younger. We had 59 attenders identified as first-time attenders, which included several invited guests.

By way of comparison, the total attendance was 281 last year, so we have 22 more people attending this year.

We are also announcing the Call for Applications for a Contract Registration Service for Pacific Yearly Meeting’s 70th Annual Session, to be held June 17th to 22nd, 2016. All interested and qualified parties affiliated with PYM (Meetings, organizations, or individuals) are encouraged to apply. Applications are due by November 15, 2015. See the Registrars if you would like more information.
