Salem Quarter meets officially three times a year, usually on the fourth Sunday of October, January, and April, to conduct business and share in programs for spiritual renewal. Under current practice the granting of money from the funds entrusted to Salem Quarter occurs only at the October and April meetings. The January session is reserved for brief reports from previous grant recipients and a longer program for spiritual renewal.
Since the summer of 1999 Salem Quarterly Meeting has also gathered informally for meeting for worship and a picnic lunch on a Sunday in July or August.
At this time, Salem Quarter has two internal committees: the Salem Quarter Funds Allocation Committee and Salem Quarter Ministry and Counsel. The Quarter appoints representatives to the Beacon Hill Friends House Board and to the Massachusetts Council of Churches.
