YEARLY MEETING: A large autonomous body of Quakers, which meets for several days once a year.

It meets annually to conduct business, formulate the discipline, receive reports and concerns from its constituent meetings, review the state of the Society, and communicate with other yearly meetings and non-Quaker organizations.
