Items Discussed:
1- SIAP’s participation in an international public urban art competition project (Freedom: A Shared Dream, by Farhang Foundation).

The board discussed about participating to the Competition individually or SIAP wants to participate as one organization, and also discussed to inform the SIAP members and non-members (Email list addresses) about this competition.

The board agreed to “1- Each member can participate to this competition individually but SIAP does not participate to the competition by itself.

2- Only put the information about the competition into the web-site and do not send an email to all email lists about the competition.”

2- Establish SIAP’s view points for meeting with Farhang Foundation by the SIAP’s Outreach committee and coordinate research and fundraising committees’ activities for the following items:
· Introducing new ideas in the field of architecture to SIAP members and facilitate discussion of architecture in general per our May 1st board meeting agenda.
· Fundraising for architectural research, especially in Iranian architecture.
· SIAP’s involvement in establishing art and architecture competitions and rewards in the future.
The board agrees to discuss about this item in future.

Meeting adjourned at 9:30 p.m.
