The Board of Directors oversees RCZC's practical operations and aims to include members of diverse ages, genders, and practice backgrounds. The Board is focussed on operations, finance, long term planning, and keeping the sangha legally and officially afloat. TheThe Practice Committee works with the guiding teacher to develop and maintain RCZC's practice framework. It consists the core volunteers who put on our programs (Ino, Retreat Manager, Tenzo, Registrar) plus two of our Practice Leaders (senior students who have been shuso).
