Clerk nutshell

Are you about to be, or have just become, a Quaker Clerk? ‘Clerking in a Nutshell’ is a one-day session where we will provide clear information about what Clerking entails and the basics of how to do your role well.

Whether you are feeling confident with most of your role but would like some information about, for example, how to be best organised, or you are feeling completely daunted by the prospect of clerking a Business Meeting, this course will be of use.

The session will be on Zoom and will be facilitated by an experienced Clerk. There will be time as a whole group and a chance to share with each other in smaller break out groups.

This session isn’t intended to replace our longer, more in depth Clerking course which will run again in Autumn/Winter of this year (dates TBC). Participants on this course will be encouraged to undertake the longer course for a more in-depth exploration of the role of Quaker Clerk.

This course will involve:
