Muslim Leaders to be trained on best practices to protect and empower their organizations and communities

With the ever-changing and ever-growing needs of the Muslim community, proper legal education, training, planning and implementation is key to mitigating risks and protecting the institutions they’ve built over time.

This December, the Muslim Legal Fund of America will host its 3rd Annual National Muslim Nonprofit Leadership Conference in Dallas, TX. The three-day conference, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Dallas Galleria over the Dec. 7-9 weekend, is expected to host several hundred imams, community leaders, boards members, non-profit staff, and philanthropists.

The national conference culminates a nationwide tour of regional law conferences held in cities across the U.S. that educate Muslim community leaders on nonprofit operations, laws, regulations, and other pertinent information to reduce risks related to effectively operating Muslim institutions in a hostile environment.

This year’s conference will feature a special presentation on the radicalization of Muslim youth by former CIA officer and independent consultant on terrorism, Dr. Marc Sageman. Author of Misunderstanding Terrorism and other titles, Dr. Sageman will provide compelling research and provide opportunities for attendees to engage and ask questions on this important topic.

Another key addition to this year’s conference will be an invite-only Board Boot Camp, conducted by the Nonprofit Group, a new project of the MLFA-funded Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America. It will be offered to only those who went through the department’s governance risk assessment program and will be an invaluable resource for protecting their community’s investments and institutions.

The conference will also feature multiple tracks specifically designed for imams, mosque boards, Muslim nonprofit leaders and staff, as well as philanthropists. Sessions are prepared by senior-level attorneys and subject matter experts who present on topics that impact the Muslim community, covering a range of legal, nonprofit, and social issues.

The goal of this information-packed conference is to equip the Muslim community’s leadership with the knowledge and legal resources to successfully navigate the increasingly complicated legal landscape affecting Muslims in America.
