MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
On January 31, Scott Tower stepped down as our Board Chair. His three-year tenure ushered in more stability and development of MAC’s vision to collect, preserve, and share Meher Baba's treasures. Thank you, Scott!
As a result of that change, I was asked to become the new Board Chair. Others have wondered what my vision for MAC includes. The other night I had a revealing dream in which my old, packed suitcase was carried off in a torrent of water. When I awakened I knew what the dream portended. MAC is in a cycle of change; those involved have the opportunity to grow with the organization through this dynamic time. I am assured by the diverse talent and dedication of our volunteers and staff that it is these gifts that will help us navigate forward. To that end, it is with great excitement that MAC has named its first Executive Director, John Giusto. This means that MAC is changing into an organization with a new governance structure.
I’m also happy to welcome several new volunteers who bring ideas and talents to MAC (see articles below). For example, the first Dhuni was held on MAC’s lawn in February with the help of seven volunteers. I hope it will continue with further volunteer commitment. We are ushering in a new era of on-site events.
As we look forward, this is the year that MAC opens its doors! It is a vision that began in 2016 with a small group of Baba lovers, followed by the purchase of an historic educational center in 2018. We have come far. MAC is becoming known as a dynamic hub for safely housing Baba's enduring legacy and some of His treasures. The opportunity to continue to expand this work will take an active, invested community. I am happy to share that each one of you can participate as a Sustainer Circle member to strengthen MAC’s future. Please read more about this new program below.
Let us embrace our strength to work collaboratively, and to remember we are involved with MAC because Baba's love sustains us—always. Stay with us, stay connected, and bring your talents!
In His Embrace,
