Imams’ Conference Rescheduled

As-Salaamu-Alaikum!

As you may be aware, we have scheduled our Annual Imams’ Conference for this weekend (October 7-9) in Raleigh, NC. However, due to the approaching HURRICANE ANDREW, a number of Imams along the projected impact areas of the East coast have expressed concern over their ability to safely travel and participate in the conference due to the extreme emergency weather and travel conditions. Since the safety and well-being of all conference participants and residents of the affected areas is of the utmost importance, the Conveners of Imams have taken shuraa and decided that it is in the best interest of all involved to RESCHEDULE THE CONFERENCE UNTIL the weekend of OCTOBER 28-30!

We have worked with both the event venue and hotel to secure conference and room accommodations at the same rates for the rescheduled days indicated above. As a result, we strongly advise the following:

  1. Imams and their wives currently registered for the conference that have secured hotel reservations at one of the designated hotels should IMMEDIATELY CALL AND CANCEL HOTEL RESERVATIONS for this weekend.
  2. Once hotel reservations for this weekend are cancelled, prospective conference attendees can secure new reservations, at the same rates, for the rescheduled dates of October 28-30.
  3. Individuals traveling by airline to Raleigh, NC should CONTACT THEIR RESPECTIVE AIRLINES, as soon as possible, and REQUEST THEIR CURRENT TICKET RESERVATIONS BE RESCHEDULED TO THE NEW DATES OF THE CONFERENCE. In rescheduling with the airlines, individuals should SIGHT THE EMERGENCY WEATHER CONDITIONS AND DESTINATION WITHIN THE PROJECTED HURRICANE IMPACT ZONE.  

We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of these emergency circumstances. We further thank you for your patience and understanding in this exceptional situation. We also pray that for the safety of all of those that may be adversely impacted by the extreme weather conditions produced by the hurricane.

As developments occur with the rescheduled conference agenda, we will keep everyone informed. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact your Section Convener.
