DC: APPLICATIONS SOUGHT FOR ARAB-AMERICAN LEADERSHIP TRAINING
The Hala Salaam Maksoud Foundation for Arab-American Leadership is now welcoming applications for its next intensive, 5-day training seminar planned for April 17-21, 2006, in Washington, DC. Applications are sought from those who wish to be considered for the April 17-21, or for other future training seminars, including those scheduled for July 24-July 28, Oct. 9-13, and Dec. 4-8. All applications for the April 17-21 seminar should be received by March 17.
There is no charge for the training sessions, which are held in Washington, DC, but trainees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation. The training will be led and coordinated by the Hala Foundation's Program Director, Dr. Hussein Ibish.
Applicants should be young Arab-American professionals who have completed their education and have already begun their professional careers, or those in the final stages of a Ph.D. program. They should have a demonstrable commitment to advocacy on behalf of Arab-American concerns, and a desire to devote substantial time and effort to leadership on behalf of the community.
