Governance functions are undertaken by our General Assembly, a body made up of representatives of Quaker communities in more than twenty European countries and other European Quaker organisations. The Council meets twice a year, and delegates some of its responsibilities to an Executive Committee to act on its behalf between meetings. Both the General Assembly and the Executive Committee are clerked (chaired) by Oliver Robertson.
