Thanks to Almighty God, we were able to have a productive and harmonious National Congress in Indianapolis! Also deep thanks to: the National Helpers for a full and satisfying spiritual program; Sebastian Tedrow, Subud USA Executive Director and his organizing team, for congress management; Maria Wallington, Subud USA outgoing Board of Directors Secretary, for taking complete minutes and making this report possible. The key items to report are: • New National Chair and Vice Chair Election Results • Announcement of New Affiliate (“wings”) Chairs andDirectors • Passage of a Bylaw Amendment: Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Statement • Deliberations of Five Working Parties (who provide direction for the 2016-18 term) We were fortunate to have qualified and willing volunteers to test for national leadership positions. After clear testing by the candidates and the National Helpers, the new chairperson of Subud USA is MARY WOLD and vice chairperson is LUCAS BOLADIAN.
