 The ASA Constitution not only requires that each of the three major Buddhist traditions (Theravada, Mahajana and Vajrajana) are represented; it also stipulates the requirement for gender representation when it comes to the election of the committee members, so that both nuns and monks have a voice on the committee. We try to follow these principles as closely as the current circumstances permit.
