YFGM uses the Quaker nominations process to find people to fill volunteer roles within the Meeting.

We ask our whole community to make suggestions for people they think might fill particular roles. This is very valuable, since we are a large enough community that a small group can’t possibly know everyone well. This page includes some brief descriptions of roles we are seeking suggestions for and a form allowing for suggested names to be submitted at any time. Full role descriptions can be found here.

YFGM nominations committee will approach people who have been suggested during or in the run up to the next YFGM event to find out if they are willing and able to be in the role or roles their name has been suggested for. They will discern, using the Quaker business method, who is right for a given role at a given time, and bring that forward to the Meeting for appointment.

You are very welcome to suggest the same person for multiple roles if you feel they may fit more than one. You are also very welcome to submit your own name.

If you would like to speak to nominations committee, e.g. for more detail on the process or on a role, or to clarify a suggestion (e.g. if you want to add a comment, or think that we won’t have contact details for the person you are suggesting), please email

Suggestions Box

We are currently looking for suggestions for the following roles:

Planning Weekend Newcomer: Someone who hasn’t previously attended a YFGM planning weekend, who attends, feeds in, and provides a report to YFGM on their experience.

Nominations: The nominations committee meets during YFGM weekends to discern on the names for appointments to all the other roles and committees. Between YFGMs, nominations keeps track of who’s on which committees, and makes sure role descriptions and the like are all up to date.

For full role descriptions, see the role descriptions page.

We are also currently considering appointing people to represent young friends at the Future of British Quakerism Conference in October. If you would like to be one of our reps at the conference, you can tell nominations using the form below, and we will contact you when we have more information about arrangements.
