Yearly Meeting

Yearly Meeting is a term used by members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, to refer to an organization composed of a collection of smaller, more frequent constituent meetings within a geographical area. These constituent meetings go by various names such as Quarterly Meetings, which meet four times a year, Monthly Meetings, Area Meetings or Regional Meetings. Quarterly meetings, in Yearly Meetings where they exist, are organizations usually composed of a group of Monthly Meetings.

Yearly Meetings derive their name from annual gatherings of members and attendees of the Religious Society of Friends—from constituent meetings—in order to transact the business of the Yearly Meeting.
