Governing documents

Britain Yearly Meeting in session has agreed the governing document for the centrally managed work of the yearly meeting (see 8.01, 8.03), as well as a governing document template drawn from sections of Quaker faith & practice for the use of area meetings and other Quaker bodies, available from Quaker Life Central Committee.

Changes to the governing document once adopted by an area meeting must be notified to the Charity Commission (whose permission is required before certain particularly important changes may be introduced). Area meetings that are considering modifying an approved governing document should consult the Recording Clerk for advice before doing so (see 15.13).
