Special Announcement
By Jackie Mendelson
Chairperson, JNET Board of Directors

December marks the countdown to bringing in a new year. I hope that 2019 holds wonderful opportunities for success and joy for you and your families.

It is also the countdown for my time as your Chairperson of the JNET Board of Directors. I have loved every minute serving on the board and holding such a challenging role. The responsibility of having my hand on the helm throughout the growth and maturation of JNET has been daunting and rewarding. I have had the great privilege to work side by side with extraordinary board members and exceptional chapter presidents and leadership team members, without whom I could not feel such satisfaction and pride.

I have loved being a part of JNET since the first meeting I attended 10 years ago, and will continue to contribute as a board member. I would like to thank all JNET members, past and present, for treating me with such great respect and showing faith in my leadership… even during rocky bits.

The board has elected Phil Blum to be your new Chairperson. I believe he will do an excellent job in ushering JNET into the next evolution. He has a youthful exuberance, expertise in organizational management and a keen ability to strategically plan out into the future. These are all attributes that will make for an exciting JNET in 2019.

Please come to the JNET Holiday Mixer on December 6th and help me show our gratitude to members coming off the JNET Board of Directors, those newly elected to the Board and others who contribute to the success of JNET.
