Network of Buddhist Organisations

The Network of Buddhist Organisations (UK) is a national Buddhist organisation that "exists to support UK Buddhist organisations and their members."  They say they "are a national umbrella organisation for UK  Buddhism and  were founded in 1993. We include both Buddhist practice traditions as well as non-denominational and secular organisations amongst our supporters. We also welcome individual supporters.  The primary purpose of the NBO is to bring Buddhists and those sympathetic to Buddhism together in cooperative projects and campaigns which will help a culture of awakening  to become firmly established in the UK."

It is their AGM on the 7th May from 10.30 till 4.30. Each year a venue for the AGM is offered by an NBO member. This year the meeting will be held in London at:
SGI-UK, London Ikeda Peace Centre, 7 Wakefield Street, London, WC1N 1PG,
Tea and coffee will be available. Lunch will be a cold buffet. Please bring food to share.
