IMP ^o^ Bulletin 057
Reminder:  2000 SAYMA Census for
Friends World Committee for Consultation
Please append to State of the Meeting Report

(in part from a 3-11-00 letter to Monthly Meeting and Worship Group
Clerks and Representatives, from Penny Wright, Clerk, SAYMA)

<|>  SAYMA is asked every year by Friends World Committee for
Consultation (FWCC) to give them a census count.

<|>  FWCC is a consultative organization, established in 1937, with the
role of enabling 304,000 Friends and their yearly meetings in 70+
countries to work cooperatively. It's goals include being a channel of
communication, and promoting understanding of diversities among
Friends.  It activities include being Friends' voice at the UN, with
status there as a Non-Governmental Organization.

<|>    A worksheet (green) for preparing your Census was distributed at
Winter Representative Meeting.  It was also enclosed in the registration
packet for Winter Rep Meeting mailed to clerks of meetings and worship

<|>    An e-mail version of the Census Worksheet is available in IMP^o^

<|>    Please report your census results with your June '00 State of the
Meeting Report. This can be by --
        -- attaching,
        -- appending,
        -- including it in the text,
        -- or whatever is most convenient!

<|>    Yearly Meeting Planning Committee would greatly appreciate your
submitting the State of the Meeting Report to the office as early as
possible (ideally by May 24).

<|>    As last year, the plan is to make State of the Meeting Reports a
formal part of the opening YM session on Thursday evening.
