1. MCA: EC and BT Election
Dear MCA Community:
Below is the planned schedule for the MCA General Body Meeting (GBM) & Election on December 16th
– The voting will officially start at 2pm
and will end at 7pm.
– The General Body Meeting will start right after Asr prayer (Iqamah at 3:35pm
) – the official GBM will start one hour before Asr, but according to the MCA constitution, if it doesn’t reach quorum – which is typically the case – then it will start one hour after that.
The GBM schedule will include:
– EC Update: 3:50pm – 4:35pm
EC Q/A: 4:35pm – 4:55pm
– Maghreb prayer preparation & salat
– BT Update: 5:25pm – 6:10pm
BT Q/A: 6:10pm – 7pm
– End of GBM: 7pm
The GBM secretariat will determine whether or not there is a need to extend the GBM.
2.MCA/MIA Gym Usage Survey
The MCA/MIA have established a gym usage committee to encourage organized usage of the gym that is effective and beneficial for the whole community. The first objective is going to be to establish organized competitive sports teams. These include basketball, volleyball, table tennis, badminton etc.
Research has shown that regular exercise has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular fitness and body composition, yet decrease blood pressure and blood fat levels. Furthermore, exercise is also one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts overall mood. We hope these efforts will be in the spirit of keeping our mind and body healthy and preserving the amana that Allah swt has blessed us with.
