BIBS has a new executive director, a position vacated by Dan Black who has stepped down to address some other matters. Josh Rychert, a leader of Refuge Recovery Boise and a board member accepted the role as new executive director and president of the board. Dan had helped establish BIBS in January, 2013, and has since offered beginners classes. He led the Sunday 11 a.m. Guided Meditation and was facilitator at the Sunday noon Buddhist Classics book study group. Both sessions at those time slots are expected to continue, as the group transitions with new facilitators. Dan’s last day leading meditation will be Sunday, Aug. 12. He is downsizing possessions and will offer pieces of Buddhist art to those who are interested. Anyone interested in meditation, Buddhist art, or to say hi to Dan is welcome to come visit on Sunday at 11.
