Terms will begin in May 2018 and service may be up to three years.
Our Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies is only as strong as the bonds of its Members. Over the past two years we have worked diligently to establish a new organization, one that will be both proactive and responsive, understanding and guiding our member agencies and the broader Jewish human service sector. We are working toward our goals of:
- Establishing a Center for Innovation and Research,
- Implementing cost saving efficiencies for our member agencies, and
- Providing thought leadership and advocacy for the diverse and complex needs of the communities we serve.
The guiding force behind this effort is a Board of Directors committed to bringing greater support to members and the broader community each year. We are seeking nominations for passionate leaders to join our board. Please take a moment to consider nominating someone who would be an asset to NJHSA as we move forward with our critical work.
