GBC Midterm General Meeting Resolutions 2017

Hare KrishnaBy the GBC

One World Team (passed by Correspondence Vote in September 2017) Summary: “Inspired by the success of the goal-driven model for increasing book distribution in North America, the BBT Marketing and Communications Department would like to propose a “One World Team” approach with an aim to increase book distribution in all temples around the world. By setting a unified worldwide goal and by providing methods by which congregations can be engaged in systematic book distribution efforts, the ‘One World Team’ has the potential to create a new wave of increased book distribution throughout ISKCON.” Whereas the 7th purpose of ISKCON is “With a view towards achieving all aforementioned purposes, to publish and distribute periodicals, magazines, books and other writings.” Whereas any devotee who has studied Srila Prabhupada’s life and teachings knows that he wanted his followers to inundate the world with his transcendental books. Whereas the ‘One World Team’ proposal incorporates a unified world-wide goal-driven approach for book distribution for temples all over the world. Resolved: 1. The GBC embraces the ‘One World Team’ to cooperate with the expansion and organization of book distribution all over the world. 2. The GBC Zonal Secretary will ratify the annual goals set for the ‘One World Team’ and will monitor and encourage their zones to accomplish those goals.
