Al Sura, Inc. Cancels 2014 White Attire Affair - Refunds Coming
Herndon L. Davis - Public Relations
WASHINGTON, DC – It is with great disappointment that The Board of Directors of Al Sura, Inc. announce the cancellation of the 2014 White Attire Affair, scheduled for Saturday, August 9, 2014. We deeply apologize for the cancellation and to those who pre-purchased tickets, the many others who booked rooms at our host hotel and to those who made work-travel arrangements in order to join us on August 9th.
Al Sura will be refunding all ticket purchases this week to the credit or debit card used during your purchase. We also strongly advise that individuals who booked hotel rooms and made other travel arrangements to please cancel them in order to avoid any late cancellation fees.
Please remember that this is just a temporary setback or bump in the road for us. In fact, Al Sura, Inc. is already at work planning the 2015 'Al Sura In Black' Event (February) and the 2015 White Attire Affair (Summer) but we need your help!
Cancellation Reasons and New Board Member Opportunities
This year’s White Attire Affair was canceled due to a variety of planning, scheduling and logistical conflicts as well as a lack of coordination and communication on Al Sura, Inc's side. Many in our community may not be aware that Al Sura, Inc. is an all-volunteer Board. We have no dedicated employees to operate the organization throughout the year. Our Board members work full time jobs and have family commitments but use their spare personal time to plan and financially contribute to the success of both the annual 'Al Sura In Black' Event (Winter) and White Attire Affair (Summer).
This year we were simply overwhelmed and we need your help!! We need more dedicated Board Members who agree with our vision and mission and who are willing to roll up their sleeves to assist us in planning and financially contributing to our socially conscious events each year.
When submitting BOTH your resume and an essay; answer the following questions:
1. Why do you want to join the Al Sura Board?
2. Which skills and/or experiences do you possess to positively contribute to Al Sura and our community?
3. What ideas/suggestions would you bring to the table if selected as an Al Sura Board Member?
All finalist candidates will be asked to be interviewed in person by the entire Al Sura Board. Finally the Al Sura organization requires annual Board member dues of $500. So what do you think? Wanna join us?? Email us today!
