    Salaamu alaikum!

    I attended the meeting and here is a short report on what occurred:

    1. It was announced by a Board representative that there would be an appointment of three members to oversee the operations of the Islamic Center until elections could be held
    2. It was announced by a Board Representative that there would be another meeting during Eid where elections might actually be held.
    3. It was announced by a Board Representative that the Khatib should not be accosted over community issues with the Board of the Islamic Society, that all issues should be directly presented to the Board only. The Khatib was there only to lead the prayer and deal with personal issues of the community.

    These are the three take aways that I perceived as official announcements.

    Also during the meeting I asked the Board Representative if there where actual Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws that the community could get a copy of. The response was that these Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws would be made publicly available in the near future.

    I also asked if these where the original Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Islamic Society of Northern New Mexico. The representative confirmed that they were. After researching the New Mexico Corporation Commission's records I found out that the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Islamic Society of New Mexico were not the Incorporation papers I was speaking of. Instead there were a second set titled the Muslim Society of Northern New Mexico. I do not believe they are the same document.

    In all, there have been 3 separate incorporations of which 2 were allowed to fall into revocation by the state for non-compliance and the third and current incorporation is "Not In Good Standing" with the state and is at risk of being revoked again.

    Insha'Allah we as a community we need to come together and mange the affairs of the Islamic Society in a more competent manner.

    Salaams
    At the Friday Prayers today I looked for copies of the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws to be publicly available at the Masjid as promised. They were not there!
    I approached brother Shahzad, a member of the board to see if he could provide a copy of these articles and bylaws. He said he would try to get a copy to me.

    Insha'Allah I intend to go to the Secretary of State of NM and get these Articles and Bylaws for all three filings. If I get them I will make them available here as a downloadable PDF.
