Board Nomination Form

As salam alaykum
The Memphis Islamic Center (MIC) is seeking nominations for seats on the Board of Trustees. While nomination does not automatically guarantee a seat on the MIC Board of Trustees, we are committed to thoroughly reviewing all nominations and selecting the best candidates according to MIC’s current needs. The goal is to add three new trustees by the end of this year to complete the expansion process and fully install the new MIC leadership before October 2019 when multiple board members are scheduled to step down due to term expiration.
