AMIDEAST’s Palestine Advisory Board consists of prominent Palestinian business and professional leaders who assist AMIDEAST in a variety of ways, but with a particular emphasis on supporting Palestinian students.
The Advisory Board was inaugurated in Ramallah in June 2012 during its first formal meeting with AMIDEAST President and CEO Theodore Kattouf and Country Director Steven Keller. The board unanimously elected Mr. Ammar Aker as its Chairman; Mr. Aker continues to serve in that role on behalf of the board.
The board held its most recent meeting in April 2016, when they agreed to raise funds to support more students from the West Bank and Gaza to pursue their education at U.S. colleges and universities, after training and mentoring by AMIDEAST.
