Search for New AfB President

I have just received this from the Alliance for Bhikkhunis and thought that it made sense to publish it to as wide an audience as possible.........................

The Alliance for Bhikkhunis (AfB) is currently searching for an individual to assume the volunteer position of President. The President is AfB’s ambassador to the world as well as its bridge builder. The board is looking for an individual who can visit bhikkhuni monasteries and viharas as well as travel to national and international conferences. The President is AfB’s eyes and ears on the ground. The candidate will be an excellent speaker as well as listener. A caring and empathetic person, the President is someone who enjoys connecting with others whether in person, phone, or via Skype or email. We are looking for someone with a deep and sincere dedication to the ongoing revival of the Bhikkhuni Sangha.  The President would work closely with the Board and Executive Vice President. We are requesting a two-year commitment.

Please forward this email to anyone who might be an appropriate candidate as well as to individuals within the larger Theravada community who may know of possible candidates. Please direct any questions or recommendations to Susan Pembroke at

For all of us on the board, we do this work out of love and compassion. Our work itself is a manifestation of our practice and dedication to the Dhamma. In being a part of the AfB community, we aspire to take what we have learned on the pillow and bring it into the world.

Susan Pembroke is committed to mentoring her successor for as long as needed. She, along with the board, will surround the incoming President with guidance and boundless support, and great appreciation for the invaluable donation of time, talents, and energy the incoming President will bring.

With metta and gratitude for your help filling this important position,

The Alliance for Bhikkhunis Board
