Agreement Reached on Subud 'Outreach' Web-Site
The controversial issue of whether design and technical work on the proposed 'Outreach' web-site should be carried out by Subud or non-Subud contractors has now been resolved.

At the recent SES meeting in Santa Fe, Peter Jenkins (representing WSA at the request of Sharif Horthy), Rifka Bullen (leader of the Outreach Working Party) and WSA Webmaster Rashid Butte agreed the following procedure:
Rifka will outline the criteria and time-line necessary for Subud members to tender for the Outreach Website work.

Peter will post these details on the SES web-site at, closing date 31 October. The details will also be promoted via listservers etc.

Tenders will be reviewed and contract awarded. Review team to consist of three (Rifka, Peter and one other to be decided)
In the absence of a suitable tender from a Subud member, the contract will revert to the current contractor.

It is hoped that this amicable agreement will allow the important 'Outreach' work of Rifka and her team to proceed smoothly. Sharif Horthy (WSA Chair)

Tenders are invited from Subud members for design and development of the "Subud Outreach" Website. Details below. Closing date Saturday 31 October
