The Board of Directors is a key piece of the mandala of organization for Dharma Rain Zen Center. The board’s function is to make sure the temple fulfills its mission statement. The board has fiduciary and legal responsibility for the organization, and so it reviews and approves major expenditures, meets with committee representatives, and considers changes to policies or bylaws. It pays attention to strategic planning for the future function and evolution of the temple, in cooperation with the Dharma Council. The board pays particular attention to the Operations (Yellow and Green) functions of the temple. The board typically meets at least monthly, and reserves time at the start of each meeting for members to bring forward concerns they may have about sangha policies or operations.
Current members of the Board are:
- Randall Daigai Filbert, Board Chair
- Robb Cowie, Board Vice-Chair
- Polly Gemmon Lauser, Board Secretary
- Kevin Ansui Geoffroy
- Sarah Zuiryu Flynn
- John Baumann, Corporate Treasurer
- Kakumyo Lowe-Charde, Abbot and Kanin
- J Kakuon Christian
