While we focus primarily on government officials, MAPS defines public service broadly to include anyone working on public policy and engaged in national service.
Any person who is in accord with, and agrees to adhere to the values, principles, policies, and objectives of MAPS, may become a member of the MAPS National network. Its free to join.
MAPS welcomes all; those identifying as Muslim, as well as allies and anyone interested in becoming part of our community. Membership in MAPS is just as inclusive; professionals from all faiths are encouraged to join. All individual Members will be expected to adhere to MAPS’ mission and values.
Individual Members are typically, but not exclusively:
- Muslim professionals at Federal, State and local government departments and agencies, and their respective legislative and judicial Branch counterparts;
- Individuals in public institutions and civil society where formal organizations that cater to them are not possible or not yet viable;
- Professionals in public service oriented private companies, including government contractors, international development firms, non-profits, think tanks, trade associations, charities and related public service organizations.
Members are given access to MAPS Directors, programming, direct services, initiatives, network of public service professionals, partner organizations, selected distribution lists, and specialized communities of practice.
Members may also suggest, help form, and serve on Board Committees and task forces to focus awareness and advocacy around special issues, activities, functions and priorities, both at the local and national level.
