Other Quaker gatherings, regional meetings and former general meetings are associations of area meetings which broaden Quaker fellowship beyond the local meetings. They provide for conference and inspiration, informing themselves regularly about the service of their members and fostering spiritual support, learning and friendship. They have opportunities to consider the work of the yearly meeting, outreach and ecumenical and interfaith links and activities (see 12.06). They are listed in the Book of meetings.
