Two Ways To Attend Annual Meeting
Please join us for the Temple’s 174th Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 8 at 7 p.m. This year’s assembly will bring members together both in the building (with masking optional) and also virtually. And, for the first time, members in good standing may vote in real time regardless of how they choose to attend.
Information will be sent to congregants in late May with further details about the meeting and how to vote on candidates for leadership and the budget for the 2022-2023 fiscal year. Absentee ballots also are available for those who cannot attend in person or virtually.
During the meeting, President Ronnie Greenberg, the Board of Directors, and Rabbi Meir Bargeron will update the congregation on the past year’s activities.
A proposal will be presented for a major upgrade to the Temple’s streaming capabilities that will improve video quality, sound, lighting, and technical aspects. The changes would include updating equipment to enhance streaming of services and programming from both the Sanctuary and Goldstine-B’nai Jacob Chapel. The proposal comes in response to requests for improvements from members as they increasingly embrace the use of technology to engage in Temple activities.
In addition, the annual meeting will include the presentation of the William Brosler Award to a member whose long-term involvement at the Temple and commitment to the congregation have gone above and beyond. We also will recognize:
- Ellen Tom, who is finishing her year as Immediate Past President after serving four years as President.
- Outgoing Board members Rachel Gordon, Josh Tourkow, and Jay Zemmol for their service.
- Members of the L’dor Vador Legacy Society for indicating they’ve made a planned gift to the congregation.
Absentee ballots, an agenda, and the proposed budget will be made available beginning Tuesday, May 24. To be eligible to vote, members must be current in their financial obligations to the congregation. All absentee ballots must be signed and returned by U.S. mail, by fax, or by emailing a PDF copy of the ballot prior to the Annual Meeting.
