            With the savings created by using our previous year’s effigy, the Apogaea 2013 board has voted to use some of the saved funds towards officially supporting a Temple project. We've seen Temples at previous Apogaea, but this will be the first year the board experiments with officially funding and supporting such an effort. As a result, we are facing a glump of brand new challenges and questions. We are looking for a community volunteer to help field the questions, drive the process, and help ensure that this new experiment has the best chance of success we can offer. Candidates should be passionate and knowledgeable about the Temple concept both at Burning Man and various regionals. You will need to attend several board meetings and proactively communicate with a variety of departments and members of the community. We want you to research and report on concerns related to the entire process from the initial public request for Temple proposals through to burn procedures including a storage plan should we be unable to burn again this year. We need someone who will hit the ground running as we wish to get a request for proposals in front of the community as soon as possible.
