The PAA just held an election which was won by President-elect Akhtar, who discussed with TMO his plans for the future of the organization.
PAA is a Michigan-based community organization with, he says, approximately 1,100 voting and dues-paying members. They maintain an office but no full time staff, and coordinate mostly entertainment activities through the year, largely celebrating important days for Pakistan such as Pakistan Day.
Dr. Akhtar hopes to (1) create a volunteer-staffed medical clinic to serve PAA members at no cost, (2) to engage the youth in a youth wing of PAA, and (3) to provide increasing scholarships to high school graduates.
