Re-election Results

 نتایج انتخابات و جلسه عمومی


در این نشست، مسئولانی که اخیرا استعفا داده اند، دلایل استعفای خود را بیان کردند.
از اونجایی که نبود داوطلبان در دو سال گذشته چالش برانگیز بوده و فشار بیشتری بر پنج مسئول انجمن گذاشته است. عدم علاقه دانشجویان به فعالیت داوطلبانه در انجمن مورد بحث قرار گرفت، لیکن هنوز به دنبال راه حل برای تشویق دوستان به همکاری بیشتر هستیم. اطلاعات مسئولان جدید در اینجا موجود می‌باشد.

به زودی جلسه عمومی دیگری برای نوروز برگزار خواهد شد.

In this meeting, officers who recently resigned discussed the reasons behind their resignation.
Lack of interest in ISA voluntarily activity was discussed. Counting on volunteers was challenging in the past two years and put more pressure on the five officers of the executive board. How we can encourage people remained unanswered.
You can find new officers information in https://sites.psu.edu/isapsu/leaders/.
Soon another GBM will be arranged for Norooz.

ISA Status & Re-election (reminder)

 وضعیت انجمن و انتخابات مجدد 

درصورتی که علاقه مند به عهده دار شدن یکی از مسئولیت ها هستید، لطفا وظایف هر مسئول را در قانون اساسی انجمن مطالعه بفرمایید و در اینجا تا روز 7 فوریه ثبت نام کنید.
جلسه عمومی برای انتخابات، مشروط بر وجود داوطلب، در روز شنبه 9 فوریه برگزار خواهد شد.
نبود داوطلب برای این سه موقعیت، منجر به تعلیق انجمن و در نتیجه لغو برنامه نوروز خواهد شد.

We have already negotiated with the 25 Band, K-von comedian, and Nomad dancers and submitted the funding proposals. We cannot proceed Nowruz logistics without a full executive board.

If you are interested in running for positions, please read the positions’ responsibilities in the ISA constitution (https://sites.psu.edu/isapsu/files/2017/03/constitution-24nrb2m.pdf) and sign up here (https://goo.gl/forms/7eJ4eXccJmSoDJ6I2) by February 7. A General Body Meeting will be arranged for the election on Saturday, February 9, contingent on having volunteers.
The absence of volunteers for these three positions will lead to ISA suspension and consequently Norooz event cancellation.

Please feel free to contact psu.isa@gmail.com, if you require any further information.

Docunight #53 [Penn State]: MAHAK – A World She Founded (reminder)

Date: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 7 PM – 8 PM
Location: Foster Auditorium, 102 Paterno Library, State College, Pennsylvania 16802

MAHAK – A World She Founded
From “Karestan” Documentary Film Series
Director: Mohsen Abdolvahab
2017 / 57 min
Persian with English Subtitles, Free Admission

The life of Saideh Ghods changed completely when her two-year-old daughter Kiana was diagnosed with cancer. As she confronted her daughter’s suffering, she became aware of the suffering of so many impoverished families in hospital corridors around the country who were dealing with children afflicted by cancer. When, due to the doctors’ timely diagnosis, Kiana was on the path to a full recovery, Saideh Ghods resolved to prevent the unnecessary deaths of children with cancer caused by lack of access to therapeutic facilities or insufficient financial resources.

Ghods founded MAHAK over 25 years ago. It quickly gained fame and support throughout Iran. Today it is one of the most highly functioning and trusted charities in the country. Countless children have been helped and saved.  A few years after founding MAHAK, Ghods, along with a group of Iranian philanthropists, established a fully equipped hospital in Tehran that specializes in treating children with cancer.
