Below are the priorities I would like to pursue via the 9th Board should I get elected:

1. Strengthening SUTA’s internal governance (accountability, transparency and systems)

2. Improving SUTA’s communication channels – social media and website

3. Revisiting SUTA’s value proposition at the central level and in particular the feasibility of holding global reunions. Bi-annual reunions consumes bulk of SUTA board’s energy while the inadequate response from the members proves the need for a change in the direction. SUTA needs to revisit its value proposition to be able to attract more members specifically those residing out of Iran. Currently SUTA active members constitute less than %1 of Sharif alumni. I see this and other recent trends as a risk to SUTA’s continuity.

4. Supporting local chapters as the forefront of SUTA who can deliver the most value to the members

I believe the board members can minimize their involvement in SUTA’s operation by encouraging volunteer members so they can focus on the above.
