Monthly Meeting Minutes of the Boards of Directors for ISKCON New Vrindaban & ECOV – 12/19/13

ISKCON New Vrindaban (INV) 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.

ECO-Vrindaban Mission Statement: ECOV is dedicated to cow protection, sustainable agriculture, self-sufficiency and simple living — all centered around loving service to Sri Krishna, as envisioned by the ISKCON New Vrindaban Founder-Acharya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Present INV:  Jaya Krsna, Gopisa, Dayavira, Jamuna, Chaitanya Mangala, Tamohara & Ranaka.

Present ECOV: Madhava Gosh, Ranaka, Chaitanya Mangala & Anuttama.

Recording Secretary: Laxmi Honest.

1. INV Appointed Auxiliary Board Member for ECOV

As had been previously discussed at the INV board meeting, it was agreed that Ranaka will be the INV representative on the ECOV board starting January 1st, 2014.

2. Snyder Gas Well Update

Gopisa reported that Chevron made payments they claim are now up to date.  Based on his preliminary research he thinks their assertion is reasonable, though he will continue to do more investigating. Chevron has until March of 2014 to report totals from 2013.

3. Dates for 2014 Semi-Annual Joint Board Meeting

It was agreed that the next semi-annual board meetings will be held March 21 & 22.

4. ECOV Food Production

Madhava Gosh reported that ECOV is working on this.  A spreadsheet was created detailing Jebbia’s prices to give an idea of what INV might pay for produce grown locally.

The service opportunity announcement for a garden manager has been edited and posted on the Brijabasi Spirit.  Jaya Krsna will ask Lilasuka to post it on Dandavats and other ISKCON related websites as well.
