Please participate! Join our sangha of volunteers — becoming an IMCC volunteer can be a great way to connect with like-minded people and get involved with IMCC. Whether you're new to IMCC or a longtime member, we need your help. If you feel you've benefited from our programs, we invite you to put your spiritual practice into action by volunteering your efforts. There are several ways to do this:

Room set-up

We always need people to help set up the room before our Tuesday night meetings. This is a simple job that only takes a few minutes but it enables our meetings to proceed smoothly. To volunteer contact: Carol Brown.

Retreat volunteers

Providing assistance (registering, set up, etc.) on an ad hoc basis for one of our retreats or other special events.

Work with Board Committees

We have several active board committees that need volunteers. Committees include: Communications, Outreach, Sangha Building, Fundraising and Finance. Bring your expertise and apply it on behalf of IMCC and become more connected with the sangha and in our community.  Just contact us and we will tell you more.
