Registrars’ Report to Pacific Yearly Meeting 2016

June 21, 2016
As of June 20, 2016, 305 people have attended Pacific Yearly Meeting’s 2016 Annual Session for at least one day. Of these, 30 were in the Children’s Program, 20 were in the Junior Yearly Meeting, and 35 said on their registration forms that they considered themselves Young Adult Friends. The median age of our attenders here is 54.5 years old. The mean is 48; and 41 people registered themselves as first time attenders.
We want to extend our profound thanks (once again) to the Berkeley Contract registration team: Joe Magruder, Margaret Mossman, and Joanne Magruder. Their help, plus the online registration process has made things so much easier for all of us.
We will be posting the application for the 2017 contract registration team shortly after Annual Session on the Pacific Yearly Meeting website. Applications are due November 15th, 2016. See the Registrars for more information.
From Sarah Tyrrell: After four years of service as Registrar, this is my last time before you in this role. On behalf of myself and Heather, it has been a joy to welcome you to Annual Session and make sure you are well-situated while you’ve been here.
Thank you!

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.
