POSTPONEMENT OF AGM AND ELECTIONS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
27 April 2020
I pray this finds you well InshAllah.
In accordance with our Constitution we were expecting to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June and elections in May this year. However, in light of the coronavirus pandemic and based on current government health guidance, it is increasingly unlikely that these key events can proceed at such time in the manner prescribed by our Constitution.
Following discussion with our external charity lawyers and taking into account guidance provided by the Charity Commission, the EC wishes to inform you of the following decisions with respect to the AGM and elections:
• AGM expected to take place in June is postponed to 1 November 2020 • Elections expected to take place in May are postponed to 18 October 2020
Consequently, the current EC will stay in place until the postponed AGM.
The EC considered various other options prior to reaching the decision to postpone these key events – including holding the AGM and elections through electronic means. However, as it is currently expected that we will not need to postpone these events for more than a few months, and with the aim of keeping to the spirit of our Constitution, the legal advice is that postponement is a better option for our charity at this time.
The EC will revisit the AGM and election decisions (set out above) periodically – taking into account, in particular, current government and Charity Commission guidance. Should it become necessary to alter the arrangements (set out above) we will inform members accordingly.
DarulQur’an is pleased to announce its annual Qur’an competition will take place on 07 and 08 December, 2018.
Thisyear, Darul Qur’an will also be running exciting and interactive Islamic art, calligraphy, poetry and story-telling workshops alongside the competition. We invite everyone, young and old, to come view and create poetry, art, and calligraphy on the theme of Muhammad, the Beloved.
In order to comply with Data Protection, the CVs of individual members of the Executive Committee for the term 2017 – 2019 will be emailed to you, along with the manifesto of the President, Dr Munir Datoo. Please do not publish these on public forums where non-members of our community may have access to them, but keep them for your own personal use only.
Pursuant to s7.4.2 of The Constitution, the Electoral Commission declares that all the positions for the Executive Committee standing in the December 2017 elections are uncontested. Subsequently no election will be held on Sunday 17th December 2017, and the Electoral Commission declares the following as the new Executive Committee of KSIMC of London:
The Electoral Commission is satisfied that the electoral process has been conducted in a free and fair manner. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome the incoming team and offer our thanks to the outgoing Executive Committee.
