    Election of Two Board Members

    Board positions are for members who have attended sesshin and are students of Roshi Henderson and have a deep commitment to the Dharma. It is also helpful to have business experience of some kind as much of the boards work is the financial overseeing of the Centre.

    In order to nominate a person for the election you need to ask them in advance of the meetings, and also if you are nominated one must be available to come to meetings, about once every six weeks or so. Most meetings are about two hours in length.

    Please make a special effort to attend this meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!
