This year, 2015, we will begin our observances with the 50th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s arrival in the US, and quickly move on to 2016, just one year away. Continental and regional committees have been formed and are active.
But, recently our International Coordinator, Ajay Kumar prabhu from the UK has had to step down from this service, due to personal circumstances. We thank him for his excellent service in mobilizing devotees for planning their 50th anniversary celebrations.
We now need to try to fill this position as soon as possible. A service description follows.
On behalf of our committee, Pancharatna dasa will receive all enquiries, resumes, etc. so if you are interested in this service or know someone who might, please write with personal details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you. We look forward to working with you to make 2016 a fantastic year for ISKCON.
