You can review the announcement of the Core Group invitation at the ZCP website:Invitation

Participation in this group is open to any ZCP member and participation is ongoing and
welcome at any meeting. The core will emerge from those members who are able to attend
regularly. As mentioned above, a Core Group or Core Circle will become a vehicle for
processing, relationship building and consensus decision making as we move from a
teacher-focused vertical structure to an all-inclusive model that embraces a sangha-oriented
horizontal structure.

Karma will be sending out a survey that will help us prepare an agenda for the meeting. Please
watch for Karma’s survey over the next few days.

The ZCP Board of Directors is correcting it’s previous announcement that Mike Papas has
stepped down as Secretary, and not left the Board. Mike remains a voting member of the Board
