Sangha Questionnaire There have been many changes to our Sangha routine lately. In order to ensure that the Sangha Board of directors is acting according to your wishes, we are asking you to take a few moments to complete this questionnaire. You may submit this form anonymously, so you can be completely candid about your opinions. The results will be tabulated and released to all Sangha members without reference to any individual’s name. 1) Should the Governing Board and the Obon Committee be allowed to make decisions, i.e., on expenditures, income, purchases, etc.?YesNoIf No, any suggestions?If Yes, any limit to the amount before a vote of the membership is required?2) If a situation arises, whereby immediate responses are necessary, should the Governing Board use its discretion and make the necessary arrangements/decisions?YesNoIf No, any suggestions?3) In an emergency, when each member must be notified, would you be willing to serve on a "telephone committee?"YesNoIf Yes, please notify a member of the board.4) At the September service, the Sangha members present voted to have two services and two Buddhism classes in the months of September (29-30) and October (27-.28). Tentatively, on December 1-2, classes are scheduled with a second service on December 2, one week prior to our regular service. Do you approve?YesNo5) Starting in January (2013), we are tentatively scheduled to have two services a month. The second service and Buddhism classes would cost $250+/weekend or $2,700+/year.

Would you like to have this option?YesNo7) We are currently scheduled to have only OCBC (Orange County Buddhist Church) ministers as speakers in 2013. Is this ok with you?YesNoWould you like to have other ministers speak at some of our services?YesNoIf Yes, how many?8) Do you have any other suggestions? We need new ideas as to how we can grow our membership and be more profitable with our fundraising efforts. We want each member to be able to air their ideas and thoughts.
