Actions Taken from September 5, 2002 Meeting
TEGV: Pat reported on TEGV, a Turkish organization providing
educational scholarships that ATAA had referred Arkadaslar to. Because it is
such a strong organization, everyone agreed that Arkadaslar donations could
probably be directed to other organizations.

NPCA Project: Susan will ask the press officer at the Turkish Embassy
if the embassy might be interested in hosting the program that Oya Bain and
ATAA/DC have put together on Islam and women in Turkey today. If they are,
Susan will report back to the board for possible next steps.
Action: Susan and Linda will produce a 2003 budget to include the
above donations, with some flexibility for unexpected donations in 2003.
Action: Susan will produce information about the five organizations
to which Arkadaslar has donated funds and also about Anatolian Artisans, to
be included in the membership renewal mailing that Linda will produce in
