After several years of lying fallow, the Buddhist Council of the Midwest has determined to invest the time and effort in a revised website to further serve our membership. This is the first iteration of many changes you will see on this site in the next few weeks.

Among the first changes will be an updating of the Membership Directory, which needs many changes. If you can assist us with updates, please send this information to the webmaster.

Other changes will follow as we find new and better ways to make this website a more valuable resource for BCM members. Comments and suggestions can be sent to the Web Committee.

Suggestions or Questions? Please send e-mail to info@buddhistcouncilmidwest.org
