The professional development force engine of the Arab local authorities in Israel
Injaz was founded as a non-profit organization in 2008 at the behest of the National Council of Arab Mayors in response to the under development and chronic dependence of Israel’s Arab municipalities on the federal government, as well as to the unsatisfactory internal professional capacity of municipal operations and personnel.
FORUMS OF MUNICIPAL LEADERS
Since its establishment, the primary goal of Injaz has been to establish and support platforms for the sharing of ideas among Arab municipal leaders and developing a “common voice” that will serve their needs and interests and thereby improve the communication of those needs to the national government. These forums serve as an essential structure from which to improve the quality of life in their towns and for their residents.
FORUMS OF Arab local authorities accountants
The forum will foster collaboration, dialogue, peer learning and capacity building among Arab local authorities’ treasures. It will also facilitate access to key government officials and ministries by establishing effective means of communication and constructive relationships with government officials.
SUB-COMMITTEES OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF ARAB MAYORS
The overall objective of the Glazer-funded project remains to further advance Arab municipalities’ (ALAs’) capacities by convening professional committees of the National Council of Arab Mayors (NCAM), comprised of municipal officials and other stakeholders, in order to share common challenges and opportunities and to formulate government policy recommendations that are responsive to these challenges and opportunities.
The first annual conference for Arab local governance was organized by Injaz Center in collaboration with the National Committee
the meetings were aimed to establish dialogue between the heads of Arab local
