The Interim Board has issued their April update, where they outline the things they have been working on.
Here is a summary of the key decisions that have been made, but the update is worth reading in its entirety; there are a lot of moving pieces at play right now, including staffing changes and some additional efforts and considerations going in to creating a culture of listening and community involvement and revising the care and conduct policy.
The IB will put out a community-wide survey and is now working on topics and approach with help from the Process Team.
Create a communication link with the Process Team. A subset of the Interim Board is meeting with members of the Process Team steering committee on a bi-weekly basis to share updates and coordinate efforts, particularly around the recommendations of An Olive Branch.
Create an advisory group on Practice and Education matters. We have begun a monthly meeting between members of the Interim Board (IB), and representatives from the greater mandala, including Charlie Goetzl, International Director of Practice and Education; a representative Acharya (recently John Rockwell); Janet Solyntjes, Chair of the Shastri Council; and David Brown, Executive Secretary to Shambhala.
Move Shambhala Online, Kalapa Publications and the Shambhala IT group from Kalapa Media in the Sakyong Potrang to Shambhala Global Services.
