At its April 2018 meeting, the Board accepted with regret the resignations of the congregation’s President Jordana Schmidt and Treasurer Kalanit Mayer, and thanked them for their contributions.
Both positions have been filled on a temporary basis until permanent replacements can be elected at the next Annual General Meeting later this year. The Board has also chosen a temporary replacement for the non-executive position that became vacant as a result of the other changes.
Jordana had been President since August 2016, and a member of the Board since 2014. She resigned due to ongoing health issues.
David Clark, the shul’s long-time Vice-President, was chosen by the Board to be Acting President in Jordana’s place, leaving the position of Vice-President vacant until the AGM.
Kalanit submitted her resignation because of mounting work demands on her time. She was elected to the position at last year’s AGM in August, and had been Secretary the previous year.
Jeff Schneider, a non-executive member of the Board since the 2017 AGM, has been appointed as Acting Treasurer.
The vacancy for a non-executive member of the Board flowing from Jeff’s selection as Treasurer has been filled by Sean Ladiges.
Although Sean, his wife Sarah Gelbart, and young daughter Netta haven’t been members of the congregation in their own right for very long, Sean is a familiar figure around the shul. He was brought up as a member of the community by his parents Michal and Sven, and celebrated his bar-mitzvah with us.
