Contact Us

This page contains contact information for a number of key functions within PacYM.  For a complete list of all PacYM role-holders (but without contact information), see the PacYM Roster page.

If in doubt, simply address your email to, and ask that it be forwarded to the appropriate person.

NoteWe are phasing in a new set of role-based email accounts for the main PacYM roles, replacing various ad hoc gmail accounts  that had been set up in the past.  The switchover is in progress and takes some getting used to.  If your email to a address is not responded to within a day or two, try contacting the old gmail address (if you can find it) or notify the Website Editor or the Assistant to the Clerk (see below).

Who’s Who

The Roster

See the Roster of PYM Officeholders for a complete list all PYM officers, appointees, committees, committee members and delegates.  However the Roster does not contain contact information.  Contact information for a number of key positions can be found below.  For other contacts see the Quarterly Meeting directories (Southern California QM and College Park QM, see below).

Get Involved

The year-around work of Pacific Yearly Meeting is conducted almost entirely by volunteers. Without the many, many volunteers listed in the Roster none of it would happen. Working on committees is also a great way to enlarge your circle of F/friends beyond your local community.  For more information about PacYM committees and the nominating process (including how to volunteer to serve PacYM), see the Get Involved page.
