It has been a couple of years that IINY has started its membership program. As a non-for-profit organization part of IINY’s operations and services depend on the membership fees and donations received from its dedicated members. Thus, we encourage all of our attendees to become official members of the center and support it with their generous donations.
Your membership fees provide IINY with a source of income which will be used towards planning and organizing activities for the community. These activities include religious and cultural services for Muslim communities in New York and the Tri-State area.
-Official IINY members are eligible:
- For nomination of IINY’s Board of Directors.
- To vote during the Board’s elections.
- Use IINY’s parking space while attending programs.
-Members automatically become part of the IINY e-mail list and member directory. They will receive periodic e-mails about upcoming events and programs.
-Members have the opportunity to advertise their businesses in IINY’s business directory.
-Members will receive free IINY Library membership cards for the duration of their membership.
