Also in attendance was Adrian Garcia, the Democratic candidate for County Commissioner Precinct 2, who inducted the Board members with a swearing-in ceremony.
Fakruddin Sabir and Dr. Abdul Moosa who are also serving on the Board of Directors were unable to attend the meeting

The program began with a welcoming statement by IMAGH President Munir Ibrahim who spoke of how IMAGH embraced its cultural diversity and Club 65 President Paru McGuire and SAYA President Mohammed Khan briefly talked about the Vision and events put forth by their respective sister organizations, both under the umbrella of IMAGH.
