Registration is open for CYM Annual Gathering 2023!

Registration for the Annual Gathering opens today, May 1st!

Friends, we’re over the moon excited to announce that registration for our first blended annual gathering – our first in-person gathering in three years – is open. This year, the gathering will include Quaker study sessions, worship, the Sunderland P. Gardner keynote lecture, programming for children and youth, and special interest group workshops.

Find information and links to the online and in-person registration on two different platforms, so please double check you are applying for the right one: forms here.

We invite you to register as soon as possible, particularly if you are planning to attend in person. The more quickly we have a sense of how many are coming, the better we can prepare.

Speaking of which: we could use some help!

Please look over the volunteer opportunities at the gathering this year and consider which one or two suits you most. We need you whether you’re a people-person, technology-person, or a picking-up-SPG-Lecture-cake person. We need you whether you plan to come in person or online.

An FAQ page is available to answer your questions!
