SJI had its first meeting of the season at the offices of Dasho Neten Zangmo, Chairperson of Bhutan's Anti-Corruption Commission, a member of the Executive Committee, and a dear friend to SJI. Also in attendance were Tshewang Dendup, who is taking up more leadership responsibilities, Tshering Dorji who has been expertly managing the Center for Appropriate Technology, Tashi Colman who is the firecracker of the team – we wouldn't be here without his energy, Karen Hayward, who has been working for GPI Atlantic finalizing the fantastic research report that Linda Panazzo compiled on all aspects of the Samdrup Jongkhar region and helping out in myriad other ways. We updated each other on all that has happened recently and it was a lot to cover. Solar engineer trainings, agriculture trainings, extensive research. And it looks like everything is moving ahead in good order. The three-person Executive Committee was dissolved as we restructure our management model to be more focused. We are all heading east to Dewathang at the end of the month.
