Quarterly Meetings and Yearly Meetings
Monthly meetings are grouped into quarterly or half-yearly meetings that meet several times a year. These in turn are grouped into yearly meetings. New York Yearly Meeting, which include all meeting in NYC, meet annually in the summer with smaller meetings in the Spring and Fall. New York Yearly Meeting includes all of the monthly meetings in New York State, northern New Jersey and parts of western Connecticut. New York Yearly Meeting is also part of larger Quaker gatherings, such as Friends General Conference and Friends United Meeting. Friends General Conference was originally known as Five Years Meeting.
