Announcement from Penny Wright, former clerk of Northwest Quarter:

We all know that clerking can be intimidating and frightening for many people, but I can assure you that you will feel prepared (but maybe still a little anxious) about clerking—whether it is your meeting or a committee in your meeting—after attending the following workshop at Pendle Hill. (Click the title below to go to the Pendle Hill website for more informaton.)
