Cindi currently serves as the Vice Chair of the board of directors and is an active participant in Web’s programs, enthusiastically supporting it’s interfaith mission.

Ivan Mayerhofer currently serves as Treasurer for WEB. He received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2010 and his Master of Arts in Teaching from Colorado College in 2014. He also ordained as a lay Dharma teacher in 2014 after completing the Maitreya Buddhist Seminary with the Buddhist Society for Compassionate Wisdom.Ivan looks to support organizations that foster awareness and development of interdependence, community, and spiritual well-being. WEB is firmly aligned with these values with an emphasis on community, including both our relationships to one another as well as the earth around us. This combination of ecological and social harmony is what excites Ivan most about the current WEB campaign. Colorado Springs has a variety of ecological projects from urban farming to local CSAs and more. But none of these groups provide the spiritual and social grounding that is a missing piece of the ecological puzzle. Ivan looks forward to work toward completing this puzzle here in Colorado Springs as part of WEB and its community projects.
