In the cycle of the work year, I always appreciate the summer months. Not only is it a time to take holidays, to recharge and enjoy the great outdoors, it is also when we can reflect and plan.
The summer is when I meet with new Board members to provide an orientation and hear more from them about what they hope to accomplish. I am delighted to welcome Gillian Presner and Alice Retik to Federation’s Board and Tamara Fathi, Jules Sigler, and Susan Viner Vered to Foundation’s Board. I also meet with departing Board members to better understand their experience and how we can do even better in the future. Thank you, Hartley Stern and Victor Rabinovitch for your service on Federation’s Board and Susan Margles and Lenora Zelikovitz on Foundation’s Board.
The summer is when we pay close attention to Federation’s Strategic Plan as we evaluate last year’s Business Plan and write our new plan – all with the intent of strengthening the Jewish Superhighway. I look forward to sharing the results with you and to presenting our Year 3 Business Plan in September.
