PostSubject: Community Meeting   February 15th 2007, 12:32 am

Here are the condensed minutes, in case you missed it. Meaning, they're paraphrased, not verbatim (unless its in quotes). I've bolded the parts concerning us.

<Here, a pause as Dr. Riaz Khan gives a brief history on the founding of Zainabia. {9th rabial awwal (14th april) will be the 10th anniversary of ZIEC*}> [Dr. Quyyumi continues] "No matter what we do in the West, we will always be remembered by our institutions". credit was given to the sisters who made the ZIEC school. "We want new blood" message is to stenghten our institution (Zainabia).
<Here, Dr. Quyummi opens a pre-prepared power point presentation> Tustees have run ZIEC** for the past 10 years. the suggestion is to create a management committee of 5 memebers (tentative) to run ZIEC day-to-day. Should have president, secretary, treasurer, youth voice, & ladies voice. management commitee should be elected by an open ballot. {Who is a memebr? membership, annual fees? etc.} committee should have a working capital alloted by trustees, who will see to business & legal aspects of ZIEC. new by-laws will be set in place. management comm. should interact/ different sub committees to propogate change. (outreach sub committee, aalim search, education, youth, etc.)
Programming sub-commitee emphasis on english programs, speakers, topic, frequency of meeting. informational settings. link with youth & ladies.
