NEXTGen Detroit’s Annual Meeting Marking 75 Years of Federation’s Young Leadership

June 4, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Federation celebrates 75 years of successful young adult leadership and engagement at NEXTGen Detoit’s upcoming Annual Meeting, Thursday June 13th at the Chase Building in downtown Detroit.

Building on the strength of Federation’s long history of leadership, focusing on the future, the event marks the 2nd year under the new “NEXTGen Detroit” banner and the launch of dynamic new programming and community-building within young Jewish Detroit.

“As we celebrate 75 years of young adult leadership within our Jewish community, this one truth has remained,” stated Incoming President, Rachel Wright. “…we live in an amazing community that not only recognizes our young leaders, but also takes the time to assure that we are given the tools and confidence to be the leaders in the future to inspire. I am so honored to be able to continue this legacy of young leadership, to make an impact in our community and help lead NEXTGen into the future.”

A Past Presidents’ reception will take place prior to the meeting. “This 75th Annual meeting celebrating Young Jewish Detroit is particularly special in so many ways,” says Josh Levine. “As a past president and outgoing board member, I am honored and humbled to have been part of this incredible transformative movement. We are bringing together and honoring past presidents of Junior Division, YAD and NEXTGen to celebrate this incredible continuity of strong Jewish leadership. We have much to be proud of over the past 75 years and much to look forward to over the next 75 years and beyond.”

Outgoing President, Marty Maddin adds, “Our 75th Anniversary represents a perfect time to come together to celebrate and learn from our past while also charging forward with renewed energy, excitement and ideas. As outgoing president, it has been an honor to build off of the great leadership of past presidents, especially during such a critical time for our community. The future of Jewish Detroit is bright, and the source of that brightness and strength of our community will be on full display at the Annual Meeting.”

“I’ve always enjoyed our Annual Meeting,”  adds Jay Hack, 2014-2015 President-Elect. “It’s a time to reflect on past accomplishments and be hopeful about future involvement. Listening to my peers speak passionately helps me to rededicate myself to the organization and provides a great flavor for the excitement to come.”

NEXTGen Detroit’s Annual Meeting is free and open to all to join in on the excitement, but an RSVP by Monday, June 10th, is required: http://jewishdetroit.org/annualmeeting
