Diwali and Ramadan Celebrations

Back to all Motions

Conference
2002 National Black Members' Conference
Date
6 June 2002
Decision
Carried

Conference believes that the National Black Members’ Committee over the last five years has compromised the attendance of black members from the Hindu and the Muslim community in attending the National Black Members’ Conference.

Each year the National Black Members’ Conference is scheduled in either late October or early November and therefore these dates have always clashed with either the Diwali celebrations or the Ramadan celebrations.

Conference therefore asks the National Black Members’ Committee to:

1)Seek the dates of these celebrations before arranging Conference;

2)Allow two week intervals at both ends of the celebrations.
