Dear London Muslim Mosque Congregants,
The London Muslim Mosque is in the process of organizing the Annual General Meeting and Elections in the upcoming months. For those invested in participating in the affairs of the LMM, we encourage you to renew or apply for membership, if you haven't already done so. Voting rights in any matter will be reserved strictly for those who are paid and approved members of the London Muslim Mosque.
In the past, any donation amount over $140 automatically guaranteed the donor a membership status. This is no longer the case. As per Ontario Corporation Act regulations, membership is a responsibility and the process involved consists of filling out the LMM membership form, making your payment and obtaining approval by the board to become a member of a non-profit charitable organization. If you have seen our Finance Manager in the past year, filled out an application form over the past three years at some point, and have continued to renew your membership, you should be on the membership list and should be receiving invitations to attend the general meetings in the past.
Membership fee is $120/year for one person. For two people, the amount is $240 and so on. Family membership (as in the current by-laws) only entitles you and one other person who is known and approved by the board to be a voting member. Note: the class membership system will not be in effect in the new by-laws as per OCA to note.
The steps involved in obtaining a LMM membership is as follows:
- Fill out application form
- Make payment
- Board approval.
All membership applications should be approved unless the applicant does not meet the requirements which are mentioned in the by-laws.
Please note the deadline for membership renewal has been extended to November 20, 2018.
We thank you for your patience and interest in LMM affairs.
Jazakum Allah Khair,
