Exciting New Developments at Kechara

20 August 2013 - 3:20pm Comments Off

On 14 August 2013, Kechara had its historic last Liaisons’ Council meeting. In our drive to constantly improve, Kechara’s Liaisons Council is re-organising our governance structure.

With the blessings of our Spiritual Advisor, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, the Liaisons Council has agreed that we will set up a new elected body to ensure that Rinpoche’s vision and goals are consistently adhered to for the continuous growth of Kechara. This change was decided in order to take into account increasing accountability and transparency as well as giving Kecharians more opportunities to contribute to our organisation.

As part of this change of structure, the Liaisons Council decided to dissolve. The Liaisons Council then returned our liaisons vows to our Dharma Protector, Lord Setrap.  We will announce the news of the election, which will be held every two years, its process and details of the new structure soon.

In the interim until the election, there will be a protem Board of Directors consisting of the following people who will oversee the running of Kechara until the new elected Board of Directors takes office.

At the same meeting, the liaisons also agreed that the Pastorship would be on a one-year term and new pastors will be also announced in due course. In the interim, there will be two pastors who are Pastor Lim Han Nee (English), and Pastor Kok Yek Yee (Chinese). Please refer to these two pastors for any spiritual matters in the meantime.

Watch this space as we will announce more details soon!
