ISD President's Year End 2012 Message
Dear Brothers, Sisters, and Community Members,
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatu,
Jazakumullahu Khairun for attending the ISD Strategic Planning Dinner this past weekend. As we approach the end of this year, I would like to take this opportunity to update you on some of our accomplishments thus far and share with you some of our future plans.
As you recall from my first communication in July, objectives of the new administration were to focus and improve on three key areas:
Over the past six months we, as an organization, have made significant improvements in changing our approach to problem solving and becoming more inclusive. Level of participation from community members has increased significantly. This engagement with the community has resulted in higher quality and quantity of services provided. Although there are number of accomplishments to speak of, there are some that are most noteworthy:
Executive committee and the Board will begin working with many of you to develop a long-term vision for the community. Our theme is “Transforming Challenges to Opportunities”. I ask you to be proactive in assisting us. If we miss reaching out to any of you, please overlook our short comings and engage us in a positive way.
Finally, as end of the calendar year approaches, I’m sure many of you are thinking about your tax situation and how you can reduce your tax bill. Charitable giving, particularly to ISD, is a great way to earn reward with Allah (SWT) and reduce your tax burden.
So take this opportunity to give before end of the year. May Allah (SWT) bless you and your families with strong iman, good health, and success in your livelihood.
Your brother in Islam & ISD President
