Committees

Operational committees are the driving force that keeps Muslim Space in motion and our community active and engaged.  The committees draw together people with different expertise to share information and coordinate actions. Each committee offers flexible time commitments and responsibilities as well as support and guidance from the Board of Directors and the Scholar Advisory Board.
