Origins

Among general meetings that are continuing and are managing independent activities and financial accounts are General Meeting for Scotland (see 5.03) and Meeting of Friends in Wales (see 5.04 & 5.05). They represent Quakers in their respective nations and are part of Britain Yearly Meeting’s structure with certain delegated powers from Yearly Meeting. Other distinct types of general meeting are any Quaker school general meeting that functions solely as that school’s responsible body, and Young Friends General Meeting (see 5.08).
