The Trachtenberg Office Attends the Middle Eastern Affairs Advisory Group (MEAAG) Meeting

Naomi Bloch represented the Trachtenberg office at last night’s meeting of the Middle Eastern Affairs Advisory Group (MEAAG) that is held monthly in the Community Partnerships office located at 255 Rockville Pike, Suite 102 in Rockville.

The members updated each other on various issues and community events that they had participated in and then discussed the continuing efforts to reach out to members of their various communities on behalf of the 2010 Census. It was decided that the three main Islamic groups in Montgomery County would join together on behalf of this 2010 Census Complete Count outreach effort.

Then two upcoming “mark your calendar” events were discussed: Arab American heritage Month, Wednesday, March 31, 6:30 PM at the Executive Office Building (EOB) Auditorium, located at 101 Monroe Street, in downtown Rockville. Muslim Women in the Arts, Thursday, April 22, 6:30 PM, also to take place at the EOB Auditorium

The next meeting of the MEAAG will take place on Monday, April 12 at the Community Partnerships offices, Suite 102 and all are welcome.
