As-salaamualikum my dear respected brothers and sisters,
A number of Muslim businesses in the construction industry are hosting a Networking Luncheon on Sunday, June 7th from 12-2:30pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center in Montgomery County that is geared toward Muslim businesses and individuals who are in the industry. Please see attached flier for the Event. In March, the same group hosted an event where nearly 60 mainly Muslims attended and which the Montgomery County Executive was the keynote speaker and Associate Administrator of the SBA received an award from us.
As leaders in the Muslim community, we would love for you to attend. We would also like for you to announce this event at Jumah prayer over the next few weeks, distribute to your listserves and inform others about this event. Our goals for this event are to create a mechanism where we can spend more of our monies within the Muslim community, increase the capacity of Muslim businesses, increase opportunities to hire Muslims in the industry, and announce the formation of a Muslim Chamber of Commerce in the region.
