To accommodate our keynote panel speakers we will follow the same sequence as last year, commencing with our keynote panel discussion led by Robynne Rogers Healey at the start of the AGM at the times indicated above. The keynote panel discussion will last 40-60 minutes including a Q&A followed by a 45-minute break. The formal business session will convene following the 45-minute break period; it is expected to be completed in approximately two hours. The documents-in-advance package including minutes of last year’s meeting, officer’s reports, etc. will be circulated later this month or in early September. Please review these documents when you receive them in order to facilitate the business meeting discernment and decisions.
The authors of the recently released Quakerism in the Atlantic World, 1690-1830 will share their findings and reflect on the role of Canadian Quaker history in the larger history of Quakerism. Quakerism in the Atlantic World, 1690-1830 is the third volume in Penn State University Press’s New History of Quakerism series.
A 40% discount for this volume as well as others in the New History of Quakerism series will be available for those attending the AGM. Those attending the Keynote Panel will also have their names entered for a draw for a free copy of the book.
CFHA has been adapting to new technologies and is in a period of transition. We encourage all members to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to review activities of the past year and those proposed for the current and coming years.
