Items discussed:

1- HASHEM REPORT ON IRS TAX.
NOT SERIOUS REPORT ABOUT IRS TAX, SOME SUGGESTIONS ABOUT CPA:
1-GROUP: WE NEED PROFESSIONAL CPA. SHARIR (MR.NIK AKHTAR) OR RAMINEH.
2-SIMA: SHARIR DOESN’T ACCEPT MONEY AND IS NOT HAPPY BECAUSE ALL THE PAPERS WEREN’T HANDLED ON TIME AND WE DIDN’T HAVE ANY APPRECIATION ALL THESE YEARS.
3-GROUP: SHARIR WILL BE THE BEST AND WE CAN APPRECIATE HIM BY MANY WAYS:
WITH SOME NOROUZ TICKETS, AND IRAJ EMPHASIZED SHARIR’S HELP WITH SIAP SHOULD BE MORE SERIOUS AND FORMAL.
BOARD DECISION:
MR. NICK AKHTAR( SHARIR) COULD BE SIAP’S TAX REPORTER (ACCOUNTANT) AND HIS ACCEPTANCE SHOULD BE FORMAL AND BOARD WILL CREATE A DRAFT FOR THIS REASON, AZITA WILL BE IN CHARGE.
2-UPCOMING ELECTION.
1-GROUP: WE NEED MORE CANDIDATES, MEMBERS SHOULD CANDIDATE THEMSELVES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, WE SHOULD SEND THE FORM TO MEMBERS SOON!
2-SIMA: WE HAVE TO CONTACT WITH MEMBERS BY PHONE.
3-ASHRAF: I WILL CONTACT BY PHONE WITH MEMBERS THAT AGREE WITH MY IDEA TO MAKE SIAP MORE ACTIVE THIS YEAR.
HASHEM: I AGREE WITH ASHRAF’S SUGGESTIONS.
AZITA: I DO NOT AGREE WITH ASHRAF, ALL MEMBERS CAN BE CANDIDATE OF BOARDS.
IRAJ: ASHRAF’S POINT IS NOT THAT WE DON’T INVITE ALL, AS ALL CAMPAIGNS SHE CAN INVITE MEMBERS THAT ARE ON HER SIDE AND SHE CAN COUNT IN THEIR CHALLENGES.
MOHAMMAD: BOARD‘S MEMBER SHOULD BE HAMGEN.
HASHEM: AT THE END THIS IS THE MEMBERS THAT WILL CHOOSE THE BOARD MEMBERS, SO DON’T WORRY, BUT IT IS GOOD THAT WE INVITE THE MEMBERS THAT ARE SERIOUS IN THEIR PROMISES.
BOARD DECISION: MIN 5 MEMBERS WILL BE CANDIDATE AND INSPECTORS SHOULD BE CHOSEN BY MEMBERS ALSO.
3- VARIOUS IDEAS:
ABOUT THANKS FULL OF GUEST SPEAKERS:
AZITA: HOW WE COULD APPRECIATE GUEST SPEAKERS?
IRAJ: ONLY THE PRESIDENT SHOULD MAKE A DECISION TO APPRECIATE LETTER FOR GUEST SPEAKER.
AZITA: I THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA WE HAVE A FORMAT.
ZOHREH: COPY, PASTE IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.
ASHRAF: HOW ABOUT DIFFERENT ATTACHMENTS BY EMAIL?
IRAJ: ALL ARE NOT A GOOD IDEA.
GROUP CONVERSATION AND THE RESULT:
BOARD DECISION: BOARD AGREED IN THE PERSIAN NEW YEAR PRESIDENT OF SIAP SHOULD SEND TO ALL GUEST SPEAKERS A THANK YOU CARD.
BUT FOR ALL MEMBERS CARDS WILL BE TOO EXPENSIVE AND AN EMAIL TO MEMBERS WILL BE ENOUGH!
ABOUT FORMAT OF OUR APP IN RADIO 670 KIRN.
SIMA: FORMAT OF APP DOESN’T HAVE A BENEFIT FOR SIAP.
IRAJ: WE CAN CHANGE THE FORMAT.
SIMA: BESIDES THAT FORMAT WE CAN HAVE CONTINUOUSLY ARCHITECTURAL AND ARTISTIC SENTENCE DURING THE DAY /WEEK IN THE RADIO!
ABOUT FORMAT OF OUR EVENT.
SIMA: WE HAVE TO HAVE A STRUCTURE THE BEGINNING OF EVERY EVENT, FOR EXAMPLE WE HAVE TO TALK MIN.10 MINUTES ABOUT SIAP’S GOAL.
ABOUT FORMAT OF OUR DINNER NIGHT.
AZITA: IF WE GIVE OPPORTUNITY TO NEW MEMBERS TO TALK ABOUT SIAP.
IRAJ: BASED ON MY IDEA THE DINNER NIGHT DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH BENEFIT FOR SIAP, IT WAS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A NIGHT FULL OF DIFFERENT IDEAS!! BUT WE COULDN’T ARRANGE THAT NIGHT TO HAVE A MEETING WITH MEMBERS AND FINALIZE OUR APPLICATION WITH ALL(SEE ATTACHMENT BY IRAJ) .
HASHEM: IMPORTANT GOAL OF THAT NIGHT, TO FIND STRENGTH AND POTENTIAL OF MEMBERS :BASE ON, WE CAN GIVE A CHANCE TO SHARE THEIR SUCCESS IN PROGRESS OF SIAP.
IRAJ: WE HAVE TO HAVE IMPORTANT SUBJECTS IN THE LAST DINNER OF THE YEAR.
