Committee

So, tonight I attended the AGM of my Buddhist centre, nominated for a position on the Executive Committee and was elected. I'm really pleased. As important as being the bookshop manager is to me, it'll be great to also be a part of the team that is responsible for guiding the bigger picture. More about ensuring that all the goals of the centre are met. I'm chuffed because it's a way of giving back to a centre that has given me so much. My role running the bookshop won't change, because the committee only meets about 4 or 6 times a year and is primarily concerned with structure and direction. Exciting times ahead.

Mazel tov, A!

And, ummmm, Mr. Director, will you be wearing a suit at these meetings? A nice grey flannel maybe? And a tie that makes your eyes pop?

I'm thinking something a bit more like Melanie Griffiths in "Working Girl" maybe. Massive shoulder pads, big hair and huge clip-on earrings. Maybe a straight skirt and peplum jacket?

Peplum jacket. Hee!

Way to ruin my lil' late afternoon menatplay riff, though.

The Other Andrew said...

Mmmmm, menatplay. Dirty girl.

Congratulations on your election. Let's hope the committee life in a Buddist community is a bit more chilled out and relaxed than the Alpaca Ass.
