Join us for our annual retreat program that will be held at Split Rock Resort and Golf Club between the 23rd and the 26th of May. In the program we will spend time with successful community leaders and scholars, as they will explain how they have succeeded in contributing to the societies they live in. We will hear and learn from their experiences. We will have a better understanding of the needs of the societies we live in, and look for ways to increase our engagement in every aspect of the society as Muslim Americans.
Register and take advantage of the successful community leaders that will be joining the program.
