Registration for JCCs of North America Biennial in Baltimore is open! This is where you’ll meet colleagues, network, learn and grow, all in the name of building on the past and shaping the future of the JCC Movement.
We will be kicking off the Centennial Celebration of the JCC Movement in Baltimore, Sunday, May 15-Wednesday, May 18, as we explore what it means to be Jewish in the 21st century, and how JCCs can be a vital force for determining the communal conversation. Plus registering early (and often, as you build your delegation) gives you access to discounted rates to attend what promises to be a must-attend event.
The overall advantage of being there? Immeasurable.
“One of the ‘hidden gems’ of Biennial is the relationships that you build—not only with new friends in the JCC field, but also with colleagues from your own delegation when you share time together that cannot be replicated in the board room,” says Robin Ballin, JCC Association senior vice president and biennial director. “Participants learn from experts and go home with a renewed sense of excitement and ideas that they are eager to share and implement at home.
“Those of you who have attended in the past understand the buzz and the benefits attending. Biennial is the place to build the knowledge, governance-enhancing leadership skills and connections you need to make a difference.”
If you want to improve your leadership abilities, learn from vanguards in the field, hear what’s cutting edge at JCCs and in the Jewish communal world, and develop stronger ties to others committed to their JCC and to the movement, Baltimore is the place to be. There’s nothing quite like it. At this premier JCC leadership event, you will be able to choose from a full roster of learning options, as well as share your own information and experiences with other JCC leaders.
You will spend several days in an intellectually stimulating atmosphere with like-minded peers who are as engaged as you are in the world of the JCC Movement.
Build your leadership and create an effective board of directors by having one or more of your future leaders participate in the Esther Leah Ritz Emerging JCC Leaders Institute. This program both honors and educates those who will be charged with steering the future of JCCs. This intensive program allows them to participate in Biennial while taking part in a special track that emphasizes what exceptional leadership means.
