Working together as a community builds heartfelt connections. Volunteering is a fulfilling way to extend loving kindness to our sangha members, our community, and our world. 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.
Below are some ways you can volunteer. If you have a special skill or area of expertise that you think can benefit the sangha, we invite you to contact Barbara Maille, Volunteer Committee Chair.

Chair: Ann Marie Smith
The intention of the Care Committee is to extend compassion and generosity to IMCC members including those facing difficult personal situations. Caring for community members in times of need provides an opportunity both for those providing and receiving care, deepening our understanding of key teachings and practices.
Please contact Ann Marie Smith if you need care or if you know of a fellow IMCC member in need of support. Also contact us if you are in a position to provide assistance. May we take refuge in Sangha together.
Board of Directors
IMCC's Board of Directors meets every other month to determine policies, procedures and regulations, provide fiscal oversight, assist in raising funds to finance the organization, provide leadership and assume leadership roles, and monitor organizational performance. The board fills vacancies by identifying sangha members who have participated actively in the community as volunteers or teachers and have special skills that will enhance the Board's mission . All members are eligible for a position on the board; if you would like to be considered, contact the Operations Director.
