Board of Directors



Amer Meknas

I am a Marketing and Communication Executive with background in Project Management and Event Management.  I am graduate of the University of Toronto, where I also served as the President of the Muslim Students Association (MSA). My event management expertise and passion for the arts have taken me to several artistic communities and school events in Canada, the US, and UK as a speaker and competition judge. I am also involved in various bridge-building initiatives in Canada.



Taha Ghayyur

I am a writer, public speaker, community organizer, and marketing consultant. I work as Director of Communications with Sound Vision and volunteer my time with DawaNet projects. I got involved with MuslimFest in it early years, as I was asked to chair the event, unexpectedly, in the 2nd year (2005). Since then, it’s been an incredible journey for me, full of learning, creative adventures, team work, and pleasant surprises!
