Elected by Members of the Center
By Svarupa dasa

In a letter to H.H. Jayapataka Maharaja the 24th of August, 1971, Srila Prabhupada states:

"The president, secretary and treasurer elected by the members of the center cannot be changed at least for one year; better to continue it for three years."

When Srila Prabhupada says, "The president, secretary and treasurer elected by the members of the center" then it seems to me to indicate that Srila Prabhupada had the idea that the president, secretary and treasurer should be elected by the members of the center.

The debate: Should Temple Presidents be Elected?

CHAKRA wants to thank all the devotees who have contributed their time and thoughts to this debate. The debate is now over on CHAKRA, but we hope it has stimulated discussion and improved communication about these important issues in your local communities.
