The Beacon Hill Friends House’s Board of Managers guides the organization’s vision and strategic work to live into our mission to nurture and call forth the Light in all of us. The Board typically has four management meetings per year, plus one annual meeting open to others who want to join in discernment of how the Friends House may faithfully move forward as an organization. Membership on the Board of Managers is both a responsibility and an enriching opportunity for service aligned with one’s values. Current and past Board members have included a mix of Friends House alumni, residents, Quakers in the Boston area and beyond, and various other “friends of the House.”

The Program Strategy Committee works to guide the house, at a strategic level, to live into its mission by discerning/seasoning programmatic priorities and providing guidance and support to BHFH staff as they identify program-related areas for committee input and discernment and develop programs and initiatives. In the context of this committee, the “program areas of the Friends House” include public-facing events and online programs, and also the residency, hospitality (overnight guest accommodations), and facility-rental aspects of BHFH operations.
