Happy New Year, JNET Members and Members-to-Be!
We enter 2015 with exciting news about two wonderful additions to our Board of Directors: estate planning attorney Lisa Aminnia and Sandy Hollander of Let's Go! Travel. Lisa will be the Chairperson of our Growth Committee. If you know of anyone interested in starting a JNET chapter in their area, Lisa is the one to contact (Lisa@TrustLawLA.com or 818-224-6063). As Chairperson of the Social Committee, Sandy would love to have volunteers to help with our two big parties. If you would like to lend a hand or have any ideas for other fun social events, please contact her (firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-712-0933).
Anthony Marguleas of Amalfi Estates brought JNET to the coast and has been an exemplary President of the Pacific Palisades chapter since its inception. In February he will be passing the gavel to Kathleen Goldner of Shalev Senior Living, and we are confident that she will continue to provide great leadership and the innovation that this chapter has enjoyed. Thank you, Anthony, for your dedication and commitment to JNET and the Pacific Palisades chapter.
We are so proud to welcome the Westwood chapter into JNET. The first networking meeting had a record 70+ participants! Kudos to President David Gadish, Rabbi Erez Sherman, Marilyn Stern, Roya Kianmahd, and Steve Nitzberg for stepping up as the leadership team. This is our first morning meeting and we know we will see great things from this new chapter.
More than 70 JNET members and guests attended JNET Westwood’s introductory meeting on December 5 at Sinai Temple.
Feedback says that the Social Committee has bragging rights for organizing the best Chanukah Party ever! The food was fantastic, the talent truly entertaining, and the raffle prizes raised the bar. Thank you to Victor Schwartz, Zeda Spiegel, Sandy Hollander, Dalia Hayon, Doug Nolan, Ruth Segal Kay, Maury Gomberg, Elissa Linick, and Dana Bigman for creating a great event.
Next month, I will report back on the goals that were achieved in 2014 and what the board has planned for 2015. If you want the opportunity the take full advantage of all that JNET has to offer, please consider volunteering to participate on a chapter leadership team or let me know that you have an interest in serving on our National Board of Directors. There is no better way to get to know what all the members have to offer and allow members to get to know you.
Let’s all make this year one of abundance for all—enriching our relationships and spiritual lives and increasing business success through JNETworking.
Chairperson of the Board
