All-Sangha Meeting: Board Nominations
Sun, Sep 19, 2021 –
An all-sangha meeting will be held Sunday, September 19, at 7:00 p.m., which will include nominations for the BZC Board. Each year the sangha affirms three of its six members-at-large for two-year terms to the BZC Board. Board members may serve a maximum of two consecutive terms. Elections take place in October and the new term starts in January 2021.
This year three of the at-large Board members will finish their second terms at the end of 2021 (Tom Painter, Gary Artim, and Rondi Saslow), so we will be filling all three spots with new Board members. BZC members will have the opportunity to affirm them in an online ballot process in October. (The at-large members who are in the middle of their terms are Linda Hess, Sue Oehser, and Dean Bradley.)
On that ballot, the members will also have the opportunity to affirm the three salaried positions at BZC: Abbot, Office Manager, and Archive and Media Assistant.
If you would like to nominate someone to serve on the Board, please pass their name on to Ed Herzog, Rondi Saslow, or Carol Paul (BZC Nominations and Elections Committee members). We are always interested in potential Board members!
A great deal of care, time, and commitment has been put into the nominating process to make it as fair and unbiased as possible.
All BZC members and friends are invited to attend the sangha meeting. Please join us for this important conversation.
