ISNA Seeks Transformative Leader:
Executive Director Search Announced  

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) announced today a search for an Executive Director (ED) to lead the organization at a very historic point in its history. The ED is a new position created as a result of the historic overhaul of the organization's bylaws effective January 1, 2018. The former position known as Secretary General has been abolished.

In consultation with the Executive Committee and more broadly the ISNA Board of Directors, the ED will provide visionary and strategic leadership to build on ISNA's history of service to Islam and Muslims in North America. Dr. Asra Ali, chair of the ED search committee emphasizes that "the new ED will use her or his skills and proven senior level management experience to position the organization to achieve excellence in the creation and delivery of programs and services to meet the needs of our diverse and growing Muslim community."

ISNA Hosted 19th Annual Education Forum in Chicago Over Weekend
"About 20 years ago, ISNA created the Education Forum as a tool for professional development for people focusing on education in the Muslim community. The forum presents high quality information and training from experts in the field of education as well as Islamic values which form our foundation." Interim Executive Director Habibe Ali began her opening remarks at the 19th Annual ISNA Education Forum in Chicago, IL.

This year's forum, co-hosted by the Council of Islamic Schools of North America (CISNA), featured pre-conference workshops and targeted sessions for teachers, principles and administrators around the forum's theme - "Faith Based Education: A Source of Hope and Healing." The forum also featured networking sessions for teachers and administrators to meet each other and exchange ideas.

"The Education Forum is so important for teachers and administrators. When we're working in our schools, we began to feel a certain kind of isolation. The Education Forum is a great way to remind us there are other Islamic schools and gives us an opportunity to exchange best practices, resolve challenges together and build relationships." one attendee explained. 
After a full day of sessions, ISNA hosted a celebration banquet Saturday evening to celebrate the tremendous achievements of the Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, Shahida Alikhan. The banquet also featured keynote speaker Maha Elgenaidi. 

A matrimonial banquet for single Muslims was also organized at this conference. 

To continue the conversations from this weekend's Education Forum, please join us in Dallas on April 14 for an Education Conference and celebration banquet featuring a keynote address by Rumana Ahmed, Former White House Staffer under the Obama Administration, and Mehdi Hasan as well as entertainment by well-known comedian Preacher Moss and honoring local Dallas leaders for their lifelong dedication to community service.

A comprehensive coverage of the forum will be published
in the next issue of Islamic Horizons .
