ISKCON New Vrindaban Board Meeting Minutes – 8/8/13

Vision Statement: Founded in 1968, Srila Prabhupada boldly envisions New Vrindaban as a sacred place known worldwide for Cow Protection, Self-Sufficiency, Holy Pilgrimage, Spiritual Education, and, above all, Loving Krishna.

Board of Director Members Present:  Jaya Krsna, Dayavira, Chaitanya Mangala, Ranaka, Gopisa

Recording Secretary: Laxmi Honest

The first item discussed was improving community spirit. Chaitanya Mangala shared a timeline of New Vrindaban listing milestones and highlights in the history of the community.  It was agreed that the timeline should be shared and ask devotees to contribute dates and events that they remember as important and can be celebrated.

Jaya Krsna then informed the members that an Irish couple will be coming to create a video of New Vrindaban. They will conduct interviews with senior devotees and will stay one month doing research and tapings and will then return to Ireland for editing and post production.  It is hoped that this may encourage devotees to collect photos, videotapes, etc. for an archive at the Srila Prabhupada exposition planned as part of a renovated Palace.

Sankirtana Das will be coordinating events for a 2018 50th anniversary celebration of the founding of New Vrindaban.

The next topic was finding additional board members. There are two available seats on the INV Board. After some discussion it was agreed that the board should approach and encourage some of the Second Generation devotees to take on more active roles.

The next item was regarding the Palace.  Jaya Krsna pointed out that at the annual Joint Boards Meeting in April of this year it was agreed that we cannot move forward without a clear plan.  There are many ongoing problems with the building.  It was suggested that we put out an international call for an experienced project manager.
