Our Teams

The Buddhist Center, Thubten Norbu Ling, is one of the 160+ organizations affiliated with the FPMT and is a religious nonprofit corporation, registered in New Mexico.

The Executive Director Charmaine Hughes – known in the FPMT as the Center Director and selected for that role by Lama Zopa Rinpoche – is supported by a board of directors.

A team of managers, some of whom also serve as officers of the corporation as required by the state of New Mexico, oversee the various departments of the center.

Each department in turn has its own team, some of whom are paid but most of whom are volunteers.

Charmaine has recently appointed a Center Manager, who will gradually take over the center’s day-to-day activities.

As our new center is being constructed and all our activities are online, our four main teams these days are Spiritual Program, which is organizing our curriculum of some 20 classes a week, Hospitality, which has a team of 30 Zoom hosts, and Marketing and Finances.
