qaadirah-100x100In an action taken by the SFCC Atlanta Steering Committee on Tuesday, June 18, 2013 a new SFCC Atlanta Facilitator was unanimously voted upon.
We are proud to announce the appointment of Mrs. Qaadirah Abdur Rahim as the new SFCC Atlanta Facilitator. Mrs. Abdur Rahim will be fulfilling the role left vacant by Mr. Alan J. Inman upon his appointment as Global Peace Foundation-USA President.
Inman expressed gratitude for the privilege to be able to serve SFCC-ATL as its facilitator from the very beginning of its establishment. In light of his new responsibility as president of GPF-USA, he was not able to continue in that capacity. The committee thanked him for his service and wished him well.
Discussion ensued regarding recommendations for who could serve in the position of facilitator for the foreseeable future. Qaadirah Abdur Rahim was recommended as a person who it was felt could do a good job. Based on her skill sets as the CEO of Future Foundation, along with her professional and academic history, the conclusion drawn by all in the meeting representing the steering committee was that there was agreement. There was a request for other recommendations – receiving none, Sen. Jones called for a formal nomination and vote. The vote was unanimous in support of the recommendation.
Mrs. Qaadirah Abdur Rahim’s biography is as follows:
A committed youth advocate, Qaadirah Abdur-Rahim brings over 10 years of combined youth development and non-profit management experience as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Future Foundation.

She has been invited to the White House to discuss nonprofit management, contributed to a national best practice manual on nonprofit capacity building, and served as a keynote speaker and panelist on the topic at local and national leadership forums.
