Our organization was officially licensed by the Lebanese Ministry of Internal Affairs. We had our fourth Yearly Meeting in Benghazi in December 2009 There was adoption of the yearly plan, during which an assignment was set to each council member – representing a member state – to establish an internal communication network especially with parents organizations and other organizations dealing with intellectual disability in their countries.
There will be a yearly council meeting, but the executive office members meet twice a year and whenever needed. It was agreed to establish a web page with the name of our regional organization. It was also agreed upon holding a periodic conference which discusses various basic matters related to Education, Health, Employment, Housing, and Cultural issues of people with intellectual disability and their families.
II MENA Region will represent the world wide Inclusion International in the Middle East and North African geographic Region.

Registration and Yearly Fees
It was agreed that Registration Fees to join the II MENA will be $ 200 and the Yearly Fees will be $ 200. II MENA had such none expensive fees due to our sincere concern to enroll parents and self-advocacy organizations in the region who are striving to establish their organizational setup.
