Dear board members of the Iranian Canadian Congress,
I am pleased that a relatively good number of individuals from the Iranian Canadian Community have shown interest in the available vacant positions in the Iranian Canadian Congress-Board of Directors (ICC-BOD). With a view to providing more opportunities for these volunteers to contribute to the wellness of our community, I would like to inform you that I will resign from the ICC-BOD at the end of my one year term, coinciding with the upcoming AGM.
I wish all the success for the Iranian Canadian Community members in their efforts to create an inclusive, democratic and equitable society.
ICC-BOD member and chair of Cultural Committee
