As specified in our Bylaws, the GBZC Board of Directors is elected by members of the community and oversees organizational and financial matters. These include the admission of Zen teachers to the GBZC Senior Teaching Community. The Senior Teaching Community in turn elects a Teaching Policy Group which provides spiritual guidance to the sangha.
