Chapter 4 » 4.39
Area and general meetings should appoint a Friend to act as a custodian of their records, or else appoint a committee for the purpose. Area meetings should take responsibility for the records of their constituent meetings, ensuring their timely transfer to the custodian of records. They are advised in particular to ensure that the records of any local meeting which has been laid down are collected together. The Library of the Society of Friends publishes guidance for clerks and custodians on the creation, care and custody of records (4.43), and see the BYM website (new window).
