  2. A motion was passed to approve a budget of up to $1500 dollars to cover the cost of the trip of Imam Omar Shaheen leader of the North American Association of Imams to come to Raleigh on April 10 to provide evaluation, consultation, support, and training for fund-raising activities for the permanent location.
  3. If American Mulch becomes available Taraweeh may be arranged there in a tent for a fraction of the cost. Br. Kamran is still following up the details with the city.

  5. Brain Storming Ideas for development of American Mulch include partnering with an investor to build a multi-story building of which one floor is dedicated to ICM activities and the rest to be leased by the investor. This may expedite the cash flow and allow the ICM to have bigger space sooner. Also at a later stage the premium location at the intersection may be leased out to another entity to provide steady income to cover ICM activities.This and other ideas and the need for a loan from Diwan bank would be studied on April 10 with Imam Omar Shaheen.
