The Canadian Friends Historical Association is pleased to announce the creation of two new posters. The new posters have been added to the existing ‘Who are the Quakers?’ display sets. This brings the number of posters in the complete set to 10. . . .
The “Tidbits” included in this issue of The Meetinghouse are all taken from transcriptions of meeting minutes recorded at various times and location in the meetings then established in Upper Canada. The excerpts broadly relate to items of business which came before and “claimed the aattention” of the Preparative (PM) or Monthly (MM) meeting. . . .

What goes on at a CFHA Annual General Meeting? The morning business meeting satisfies the official requirement that CFHA provide financial and activity reports for the scrutiny, review and approval of the members. It is also the time when the proposed slate of members willing to serve on the Executive committee in the coming year, and the draft budget, are reviewed and approved. . . .
Efforts during the past year to enhance CFHA member website capability are nearing completion and activation. Once implemented, members will be able to perform many actions via the website, which up until now required printing and mailing of forms and fees. . . .
