Governance

Trustees, who serve on the Central Executive Committee (CEC), carry out governance and oversight functions for the World Office. If you are a Quaker who is part of an affiliated FWCC meeting, it is our hope that you will be represented in the CEC meetings and decisions. 

Governing Committee

FWCC is a UK charity, registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (charity number 211647). Trustees, who serve on the Central Executive Committee (CEC), carry out governance and oversight functions for the World Office. The CEC consists of the FWCC Clerk and two Assistant Clerks, the Treasurer, the Clerks and Section Secretaries from each of the four Sections, the General Secretary, and three at-large members. Officers and at-large members are appointed by the International Nominations Committee. You can take a look at their profiles on the ‘people’ section of our website.

The CEC meets in person annually, and it meets virtually many other times during the year. The CEC varies where it meets and uses this as an opportunity for intervisitation.

If you would like to write to the CEC, please email FWCC’s World Office Clerk at clerkfwcc@friendsworldoffice.org.
