KTD 10-Day Teachings/Changes in KTD's Bylaws

Yesterday, Lama Yeshe Gyamtso read a letter from His Holiness Karmapa that clarifies the terms of office for the appointees to KTD's Board of Directors. (Note from A Word Witch: I am not absolutely sure whether the correct name is "Board of Directors" or "Board of Trustees," so I will try to find out.)

There were several resolutions to change KTD's bylaws that were adopted unanimously by the current board, so the bylaws have been amended and signed by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, as follows:

1. Kunzang-la, Lama Kathy Wesley, and Lama David Bole have been appointed to the board.

2. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's term of office on the board is infinite (yes, you read that correctly—infinite).

3. Every other trustee, including Tenzin Chonyi or Tenzin-la—who is currently on the board—will serve for five years.

4. A new staff position of Executive Director has been created. When this job is filled, the person who holds it will report to the president of KTD, Tenzin-la, and to the board. All KTD managers will report to the Executive Director.

The letter making this announcement was signed on June 13, 2009.
