New Chair of the North London Buddhist Centre

By Karunagita on Mon, 30 Jan, 2023 - 21:16

We have a strong council, increasingly diverse and engaged Sangha, spacious building, good location, and (soon) solvent financial situation. This year, Ratnaprabha steps down as our Chair (after 4-5 years) and we are looking for an Order member to become our next Chair. Talk to Ratnaprabha, Karunagita or other Council members to find out about joining us.

We pay the London living wage and can be flexible on hours. There may be space in a local community.
