1.B) Any one of our Team  could propose a new form of business card ,to be used by all  WLCU Leaders ,as you know , all organizations  or universities uses one design of Business card ,but not us ,we should come up with one design and propose it in the near future.

  Let choose a theme for every month , where we could discuss-via email- a subject related to the WLCU daily affaires, we could share news and views with our regional leaders and their members , we could instruct ourselves and instruct others ,I would like to propose the first three subjects and monitor the discussions :

         for Jan 2010 the theme is about  :       Bylaws and NGO

         for Feb 2010  the theme is about  :      El-emigrante project and cultural activities

          for March 2010 the theme is about : Relations with the Lebanese republic.
