Dear respectful ESANA members,
I am writing this letter on behalf of all ESANA executives, letting you know some information about ESANA projects and ESANA project managers. This year we will have three main projects:
- ESANA Book Campaigns (Book USA & Book Canada)
- ESANA Research Support, ESANA Link and Scientific Research
- ESANA Representative in Egypt
I have attached herein some information about each project:
1- ESANA Book Campaigns (Book USA & Book Canada)
There are two Book Campaign Projects: one in USA and another in Canada. These projects aim to collect book donations from all over both countries and ship them to a different Egyptian university every year. The project manager will be responsible for renting storage, receiving donations from different donors across the country and helping with the preparation of the containers to be sent to an Egyptian university.
2- ESANA Research Support, ESANA Link and Scientific Research
This project aims to enrich the research and scientific activities among fellow researchers back in Egypt. Our current roadmap consists of:
- Giving advice on useful research materials.
- Giving advice on useful online resources for different research areas.
- Enabling scientific discussions between ESANA members and/or Egyptian scientists in North America and their fellows back in Egypt.
- Providing classified scientific links, search engines and electronic sources over the Internet (within the copyright allowances).
- Connecting students who recently were accepted for studying in North America with Egyptians in their prospective universities and/or cities.
- Providing information about estimations of living expenses in several cities in USA and Canada.
- Helping new Egyptian students finding suitable accommodation prior to their arrival to North America.
3- ESANA Representative in Egypt
The project aims to connect Egyptian students in North America with authorities in Egypt. The project manager should be residing in Egypt. Our current roadmap consists of:
- Being the ESANA ambassador in Egypt.
- Contacting Egyptian universities to finalize book donation deals.
Project Managers are the heart of ESANA projects. They are the key persons who help their fellow students in Egypt and North America. So, we are looking for enthusiastic leaders to lead the three ESANA Projects and take them to the next level.
The call is open now for all ESANA members to apply as ESANA project manager. If you believe that you can help with that, just write to us a brief letter stating why you are the best candidate for this position and what experience do you have in this area. You can submit your letter of interest to Hisham Sleem your ESANA VP at vicepresident@esana. Applications should be submitted no later than 11:59 pm CST on March 30, 2017.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear fellow Egyptian Students in North America,
On behalf of the new ESANA EC, I would like to thank the GA members for placing their trust
and confidence in us. I welcome the opportunity to benefit the association and look forward to a
fruitful year for all of us. As a team, we want to work on our issues together, represent your
interests, advocate on your behalf and contribute to the long term priorities of the association.
Thanks to the participaion and contribution of the GA members, we had a very productive GA Meeting in
Washington, DC on January 28-29, 2017. Starting with a great conversation with Mr. Yasser
Reda, the Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the United States of America. Followed
by various discussions on ESANA progress during the last few years, before we conducted the
EC elections. A summary of the 2017 GA Meeting Report can be found here. On behalf of the
GA members, I would like to thank Dr. Mohamed Hamza, the Cultural Counselor and Director
of the Egyptian Cultural and Educational Bureau (ECEB) in Washington, DC, and all the staff of
the ECEB for their hospitality and generosity.
The GA members also had a chance to revise the 2011 ESANA Constitution and propose some
amendments to address the issues that affect our association. Twelve amendments have been
discussed by the GA members; 9 have been ratified and 3 have been disapproved. A draft copy
of the 2017 ESANA Constitution along with the 2011 ESANA Constitution can be found here.
Please take a look at the draft version and let us know if you have any comments by March 13,
We, the new ESANA EC, will do our best to revive the association and re-establish its
connections with all Egyptian students in North America and the official Egyptian authorities
represented by the Egyptian Cultural and Educational Bureaus in USA and Canada.
In the end, allow me to reiterate my personal appreciation for your trust. I am very much looking
forward to your continued engagement and support.

Dear Respectful ESANA Representatives,
ESANA is in the process of planning for the upcoming GA meeting after a call for the GA meeting has been initiated by ESANA units. In order to proceed with the process in the most efficient way, we would like to first collect all the updated ESANA unit representatives’ contact information so that our invitations for the GA meeting could be sent to the correct people.
We would like all ESANA members to be aware that in the last two years we have been trying to retrieve ESANA`s money back to the official ESANA account, because it was not appropriately transferred to us for over two years from the former ESANA treasurer. After many efforts, we recently were successfully able to get back ESANA`s money, and we currently have it in the official ESANA bank account.
Before we discuss the details for the upcoming GA meeting, we would like to ask all our ESANA units to please fill out the following form to help us collect the most recent and updated information about the representatives of each unit:
Please fill out this form before 11:59pm on June, 28th 2015. Please also spread this message out to all ESANA members that might not have received it, especially current unit representatives. After June 28th, we will send out more details about the GA meeting that will be held in the near future.
