Membership to the Buddhist Recovery Network
Become a Member
Becoming a Member demonstrates your commitment to support the Buddhist Recovery Network. Establishing a membership base and building a community of supporters is vital for the Buddhist Recovery Network to flourish, and in turn to strongly promote the values and approaches it stands for within the wider community.
Charter Members, both individual and organizational, may retain the title of Charter Member to recognize their early commitment and involvement with the Buddhist Recovery Network. However, Charter Members will renew within the “new” membership categories and fees. For example, individual Charter Members will simply renew as Individual Members, etc.
