Update on Bylaws (19-Jan-2019)
This is to brief you all on the Bylaws. As you may know, the draft bylaws are with the attorney, whom some of the shura council members met 1/8/2019 for about two hours. This was to answer some of attorney’s questions and brief him about our intentions to proceed ahead. In the light of this discussion, he is reviewing the bylaws to reformat through his word-processing people, and suggest amendments in line with 501 C requirements, and other related transition issues. Once we receive these amendments and suggestions, we will create a comprehensive document and discuss any changes with our Bylaw Committee. We hope that this will make the transition process smooth. InshaAllah, we should be able to move forward shortly. We will first forward the process to the ICOLC membership, and then the Bylaws to the entire community.
Thank you for your input and assistance during this process.
