Dear AIAP Members, We had brought to your attention that we would conduct an election of new members for 2014-2015 AIAP board of directors in December 18th meeting. We also had called for candidates for this election, by email and in our past monthly meetings. However, we have had five candidates who have formally declared their candidacy for the board. As the number of the candidates happened to be the same as the number of outgoing current board members, the board did not see any reason to conduct a formal voting process. At the December 18th meeting, we will introduce the five candidates as the official new members of the AIAP board of directors effective January 1, 2014. The board is very proud to have five highly qualified new board members to join the board to serve our community. A short bio of each candidate is attached for your information. The board would always welcome any interested qualified AIAP members to declare their willingness to join the board as alternate members of the board of directors who will serve the board as non-voting board members.
Due to the commitment of both organizations to bring humanitarian activities to the next level, AIAP will host two members of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) - Kasra Movahedi (Deputy Director of IRC San Diego) and Sophie Cheetham (Employment Relations Supervisor) in the October 30th general Meeting.
IRC responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people survive and rebuild their lives. At work in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities to restore safety, dignity and hope, the IRC leads the way from harm to home. (Read more)
The IRC is very active in San Diego County and here is a link to their website.(Read more)
