New Committee Required

May 7, 2009

It has become more necessary than ever to form a new committee to control the affairs of ECUIS. The original committee has long since disbanded in 2007 and ECUIS has been in caretaker mode with most of its former activities in limbo ever since.

The musallah in the Joondalup campus is operating efficiently,  albeit independantly. This is thanks to some interested and active brothers and sisters. Some of them are brothers Abdul Aziz, Irshaad, and Wahid just to name a few.

In the Mt Lawley campus, the situation is very disappointingly different. The musallahs are largely unkempt both the womens and mens. Furthermore the ML facilities are urgently in need of new furniture and monitoring.

What needs to be done is a meeting held to appoint or elect new members for the committee in order to manage both the facilities. It would be better to have a common body supervise both musallahs as there is a shortage of interested persons. Sister Hajira from the Mt Lawley campus is interested in activating the society and its function especially within Mt Lawley.

Rather then re-invent the wheel, it would be good idea to meet with interested members for a brief on the process.

Some of the things that could be achieved by an active executive committee are the following:

1. Affiliation to the guild which brings with it funding and free resource usage such as meeting rooms, lecture halls etc.

2. Improved  and upgraded facilities for the musallahs

3. Advocacy for all muslim students.

4. Activities

5. Community representation

All interested parties should contact me in order to convene a meeting to appoint or elect a new committee. All positions are vacant.
