About the Community Bulletin Board

The Community Bulletin Board is a new feature added to serve the greater Buddhist community.

This page of the News is designed to publicize items of interest and benefit to the Northwest Dharma community. Using it, both individuals and regional groups will be able to share information about job and volunteer opportunities, publicize needs and opportunities, locate and share resources, and more.

There will be a nominal service charge of $5 per item for Community Bulletin Board notices. The items published here will not be commercial in nature, nor will they advertise specific events or ongoing programs. Events listings will continue to be placed in the Calendar of Events section of the website. You can easily access the Calendar by clicking on the link at the top of the page.

If you would like to submit an item for publication in the March-April issue of the News, please send your submission to

The Northwest Dharma Association is a voluntary membership organization of Buddhist temples, organizations, and informal groups in the greater Pacific Northwest. While the NWDA reserves the right to define what constitutes a Buddhist group for the purpose of membership qualification, our intention is to be an association open to all groups and individuals dedicated to Buddhist teaching and practice.

NWDA also serves as a clearinghouse of information about the Northwest Buddhist community. NWDA does not endorse or vouch for other organizations' events, practices, or projects that appear in the NWDA's printed or online calendars, directories, or articles.
