All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas August 2018
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
Ben Ziri Caravan has functioned as a great caravan for many years. The truth of the matter is that the caravan only functions well if we have good leadership. Leadership comes from the officers that are elected to run the caravan. The time has come for us as a caravan to select the slate of officers who will represent Ben Ziri in the coming year. The selection committee will meet at 2pm at the Andreas residence this coming Wednesday, August eighth. We will be calling members and asking if they will be willing to step up and take an officer position. I have always felt that it is an honor to represent our caravan as I have done as your Grand Commander for these past two years. However the time has come for somebody else to lead us for the next year. It is important for the incoming officers to bring new ideas, new vision, to the office to which they are elected. Please give some thought to serving as an officer of Ben Ziri caravan this coming year. You will find that it is a very rewarding task. You may even find that you are capable of doing things that you didn’t think that you could do. You do not have to wait to be called to run for an office, you may call me at any time to submit your name as a candidate. Call me at 1- 760- 941- 0365 and your name will be put on the ballot. The slate of names running for office will be published in the September Fez Sez and the election will be held at the October 18th meeting.
I would like to take this time to thank all of the officers who have served with me this last two years. You have all given me the help I have needed, and kept me in accord with the Al Sunna, which are the rules of our Order of Alhambra. Thank you again. It has been a wonderful two years. Theresa Andreas Grand Commander
