Please join us at the 2019 Annual Meeting at which we will thank our outstanding departing Regional Board Officers, recognize the many accomplishments of our Region's clubs, and elect and welcome our new Regional Board slate.

The May 20th Annual Meeting will start at 7PM with appetizers and beverages, followed by a brief minyan and a catered deli dinner. Our keynote speaker for the dinner portion of the event will be Robert Trestan, Executive Director of the ADL New England. He will speak on a very compelling and timely topic:

Robert Trestan
Anti-Semitism Today & Tomorrow: The Impact of Hate Unchecked

Mr. Trestan will focus on the increase in anti-Semitism across the country and steps communities can take to stem the rising tide of hate. We are hopeful that members of the New England Region and their clubs will be able to play a constructive role in joining efforts to combat anti-Semitism.
Robert Trestan oversees the League's fundraising, program initiatives and leadership development. He is an experienced civil right advocate dedicated to developing community partnerships and initiatives that provide justice, equality and fair treatment.
