Restructuring and new Website

Things have been all change at the OCBS. Hazel Benyon has now left our employ and we thank her greatly for the work she has put into developing OCBS. Two new members of staff are now working at the OCBS. Susan Gianni is taking over working with the Finances and Administration and Steven Egan is the new Webmaster as well as fulfilling other administrative duties.

The new term is getting under way. Our new Student Associates are being welcomed in and we are looking forward to them using the facilities of the OCBS offices as well as assisting us in developing future events.

The library is currently being catalogued and is now being opened to Students and Fellows with some positive comments already on being able to access hard to find books.

Our new upgraded website is up and running. You can visit it at www.ocbs.org . We already have various articles up and are in the process of uploading all of Richard’s available articles throughout the years! Our Fellows area on the site is soon to be produced with our Fellows having individual pages to upload their own work. Keep checking back as the website will be growing over the next few months.

The main work right now is gearing up for the visit of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche to the University in November for three weeks. We have a varied programme taking shape with a chance for Rinpoche to interact with various people and institutions throughout the University and So-Wide. Visit the Events page on the website for more details.

All in all, there is a lot going on at the OCBS right now. Thank you to all the people who are working hard to make OCBS a dynamic place.
