Is your JCC striving to achieve excellence? Are you working to create a truly effective board? Are your future leaders ready to step into key leadership roles?
We design the JCC Association Esther Leah Ritz Emerging JCC Leadership Awards & Institute to help your future leaders understand what exceptional leadership really means, and to appreciate that leadership is intentional and learned.
Emerging JCC Leaders have the responsibility to bring their JCCs into the future. JCC Association is dedicated to assuring that JCCs have the best, most committed, and well-trained leaders—in other words, exceptional! Now is your chance to help prepare them and to honor them at the same time. Nominate your future leader(s) to this dynamic leadership program and reinforce how important it is to your JCC to develop well-trained leaders.
This JCC Association premier leadership training program is named in honor of JCC Association Honorary Chair Esther Leah Ritz, who died in 2003. As an active leader in Milwaukee and in the continental and international arenas, Esther Leah was a visionary who led with great distinction. In addition to holding the presidency of the Harry & Rose Samson Family JCC of Milwaukee, she served as president of JWB, the forerunner of JCC Association, took on the presidency of the JCC Association-Florence G. Heller Research Center, and chaired the World Confederation of JCCs. She was the recipient of one of JCC Association’s highest honors, the Community Builders Award.
The prestigious Esther Leah Ritz Emerging JCC Leadership Awards & Training Institute is the ideal commemoration of a woman who exemplified the noblest tradition of communal leadership.
