The Abbey of HOPE, a dynamic community that is forming to nourish interfaith community with today’s religious and spiritual landscape in mind, has made glorious progress putting our skeleton together and getting off the ground since our initial gathering in September of 2014. We are looking towards our future and beginning to build capacity, plan our transition and expand our leadership circle next year. We plan to have a full working leadership circle/ BOD to put in place for 2015 annual meeting in October of up to 15 members. Terms for officers will generally be 3 years, however folks willing to enter this initial circle will step into 1, 2 and 3 years terms initially so that we have a staggered circle. As an example, if someone agrees to initially serve a one year term, they would be welcome to serve a 3 year term, starting in 2016. We welcome folks who might be interested in helping grow and shape this new and innovative way of doing spiritual community.
We are looking for a broad range of skills, talents and geographical locations and expect that leadership will actively engage in at least one program area. The new board will start their terms in October of 2015. You can find out more about the invitation by clicking on the BOD job description.
If this is of interest to you, we would welcome your attending one our upcoming meetings to see if this is a good fit for you. you are welcome to join us for one or any of our scheduled meetings.
Please contact Lori Whittemore at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will share with you our leadership information as it evolves.
