Join the Weinstein JCC Board of Directors, leadership, and staff in celebrating this past year at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 22.
The Weinstein JCC will host this year’s event in-person at the Center. Doors open at 4:30 pm. The meeting is from 5-6 p.m., followed by a party on the plaza at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to all JCC members. Live music, food and fun are back!
This year’s Annual Meeting will be one for the books! It will honor the accomplishments of the past year, install new officers to the Board, and present awards to outstanding community members.
The community is also invited to join in thanking and celebrating outgoing Board President Ashley Simon Brooks and welcome incoming President Greg Bishop.
Ashley Brooks has, for the last two challenging years as Board President, and for many years before that as Board and Committee member, brought her buoyant personality and positive attitude to bear on numerous issues. She has distinguished herself as a judicious steward of the Weinstein JCC, never flinching in the face of difficult decisions. Not only has she been integral in keeping the Center a safe, inclusive environment for the community to gather and build meaningful connections during these difficult times, but she has played a key role in ensuring that the Center remains a focal point in our community. Her efforts will allow the Center to continue to fulfil our mission going forward.
We also look forward to welcoming incoming President Greg Bishop.
Bringing knowledge and experience, Greg has been actively involved on the JCC Board for over 16 years. Prior to this position, he served as the Budget & Finance Committee Chairman. His three children are proud graduates of the Dora L. Lewis Family and Child Development Center and have attended Camp Hilbert many times over the years.
Greg has been very helpful in ensuring the financial stability of the Center.
