Board of Directors

Board Mission Statement: The Mountain Stream Board of Directors in collaboration with the Teachers and Executive Director, undertakes the role of providing leadership that reflects the purpose, vision and values of this organization. The Board commits to a shared responsibility to serve the needs of the Sangha ( spiritual community), and all beings, now and for future generations.

The community is welcome to attend board meetings. It’s a great way to learn more about Mountain Stream Meditation and our facility, the Nevada City Insight Center. Please call 530-265-6111 or email Russ Jones, Executive Director, for more information on attending aboard meeting.

To receive monthly board meeting minutes by email, or if you have questions or comments please email Russ Jones, Executive Director, 

All committees serve under the direction of the Executive Director, the Board of Directors and the Teacher Committee. To become a committee member is a great way to contribute to our community!
