Center Officer Training

SaiRam Embodiments of Divine Love,

"Do not doubt your destiny: it is to merge in the Highest Wisdom, Power, and Love. Do not waver or stay away. At every step, inquire, discriminate, and search for Truth. Be self-reliant, bold and free. Know that you are the instruments of God in a Divine Task and so there is no justification for weakness or vacillation. Be an example to others in humility and devotion. Do not scatter advice without the authority of practical experience. Love, cooperate, serve. Your Office is a call for spiritual exercise, a reminder of your being under My care and direction." SSS 09-35: 22-11-1969

The Officers Orientation and Training Workshop is mandatory for center and group officers. Please register as soon as you can.

 

 

Please view the two part video series listed below prior to attending the workshop.

1. Video 1: http://bit.ly/prereadvideo1. This video provides an overview of the Sathya Sai International Organization's Structure.
2. Video 2: http://bit.ly/prereadvideo-2. This video includes an overview of Region 2 and detailed Roles and Responsibilities for Center Office Bearers.

There will be a lot to cover and learn during the meeting. Reviewing this material prior to the orientation is necessary for us to have a more productive dialogue and discussion when we meet in person. Please note that we will also have an activity at the Officers' Training Meeting based on the above videos. 

Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing all of you at the Center Officer Orientation & Training Sessions!

To initiate your term as officers and share new Sai organization national and international information, we are holding Orientation & Training Workshops. We are offering two sessions, one in the Northern and one in the Southern parts of our region.

For those of you who are becoming officers for the first time, this will serve as an introduction to your roles and responsibilities. For those of you who have served as officers in the past, this will be a great refresher on the purpose of our organization, centers, roles and responsibilities. It is important regardless of our tenure in the Sai organization that we come together and realign ourselves with Swami's teachings and share our lessons learned with our peers and center members.

Phone, e-mail, and physical mailing contact information is required for all center officers and group leaders. Please ensure that the complete pertinent information is submitted on the training meeting registration form listed below. The contact information will be used to send you important SSIO international, national, and regional communications. Regional and national officers will be the only recipients of this information.

It is required that ALL officers attend one of the following sessions.

Session 1 - Saturday, February 9th
Residence of Sivakumar Sreenivasan
(Address was sent in email)

Session 2 - Saturday, February 23rd

Sai-lent Retreat, March 22-24

The 2019 Sai-lent Retreat is being held on March 22-24 at the Claymont Court's Great Barn in Charles Town, West Virginia. It is only an hour's drive from Northern Virginia and Washington, DC. It promises wonderful Satsang and provides a time to "tune-in" in to our beloved Swami's divine energy. This is a time of renewal, peace, learning, and spiritual transformation.

The retreat starts on Friday at 7:00PM, Ends Sunday at 1:15PM. We have a wonderful speaker, time to just wind down and relax, nature hikes, and other activities.

We have comfortable accommodations (heat in the rooms), delicious vegetarian/vegan meals, and beautiful countryside that the Native Americans consider scared.

The registration site is now open. It includes the program and many additional details. Please register at:
