MAPS’ LEADERSHIP TEAM
Muslim Americans in Public Service is managed by a Board of Directors, which is supported by specialized Board Committees and a standing, non-decision-making Advisory Council.
To facilitate its mission effectively, MAPS also organizes State Committees for sub-national coordination; engages partner organizations to create synergies and reduce redundancies; and convenes both Federal and State Leadership Coordination Councils to provide fora for sustained cooperation and collaboration across similarly focused Muslim public service associations and organizations.
NATIONAL BOARD OF DIRECTORS
MAPS objectives and activities are developed and executed by an experienced Board of Directors.
The Board is comprised of a dedicated Executive Committee that serves alongside senior public servants and community organizers that help guide decisions as At-Large Members.
Together, participating in their personal capacities, they represent a diversity of professional backgrounds, ethnic and Muslim faith communities, levels and branches of government experience and civil society engagement.
BOARD DEPUTY DIRECTORS & BOARD COMMITTEE CHAIRS
Committees and Task Forces may be formed by the MAPS Board as needed to achieve MAPS’ mission and organizational priorities. These include the Board Committees for Membership, Operations, Professional Development, Communications, Policy, Outreach, and Finance, as well as the Standing Legal Advocacy and Public Private Partnership Committees.
MAPS STATE COMMITTEES
State Committee Presidents help organize MAPS National members and local public servants, and represent MAPS among government officials within their respective States. Learn more about the State Committees and their respective leadership here.
These local leaders are key to strengthening MAPS National community while ensuring community and professional development are brought directly to local public servants where they live and work.
Presidents of all MAPS State Committees are also connected to one another on a State Leadership Coordination Council.
FEDERAL LEADERSHIP COORDINATION COUNCIL
MAPS convenes two Leadership Coordination Councils (Federal and State) to provide fora for sustained cooperation and collaboration across similarly focused organizations, and to allow input into the programs and services of MAPS National.
While the State Leadership Coordination Council connects the Presidents of all MAPS State Committees above, the MAPS Federal Leadership Coordination Council is comprised of representatives of established Muslim staff associations across the Federal government. Represented organizations include MAPS Chapters and other Muslim employee resource groups, employee networking/ affinity groups, and volunteer employee associations across the Federal Inter-agency.
Leadership Coordination Council members participate in MAPS in their official capacities representing their respective organizations. Participation in MAPS does not reflect or imply endorsement by the listed U.S. Government agencies and departments.
All Board members participate in MAPS in their personal capacities, while Leadership Coordination Council members serve in their official organizational capacities. Participation in MAPS does not reflect or imply endorsement by the U.S. Government or any of its agencies and departments.
