New Vrindaban Board Discusses Many Positive Projects and Challenges Ahead
Thomas Haribol, New Vrindaban
The semi-annual joint board meetings with ECO-Vrindaban, ISKCON New Vrindaban, and the Village Council took place on October 21-23rd. Members met in multiple sessions to discuss the achievements of 2022 and speak about initial plans for 2023. “The combined board meeting this year was a very positive experience. New Vrindaban is unique in that it’s managed by three distinct boards with unique functions,” said Anuttama das, GBC and board member at ISKCON New Vrindaban. “As the years go by these boards, and their members, are learning to better understand each other’s needs and priorities and build on each other’s strengths.” These bi-annual joint-board meetings are also an opportunity for residents to meet, ask questions, and express concerns. Following a meeting of board members from the different institutions, board members joined New Vrindaban residents for kirtan and prasadam in Govinda’s restaurant, where they could converse casually.
