Convention Wrap Up

During the convention the attendees dynamically recorded their notes about all sorts of great region and club ideas and they documented the many inspirational sessions. Checkout our extensive notes to learn about the take-aways.   

The 2015 convention took place at the Deauville Hotel and Convention Center on Miami Beach.  The circa 1963 sun-drenched lobby made a favorable impression with its high ceilings and glitz and the dining room seemed as if it was on the beach! The twenty-three New England attendees from nine clubs were extremely proud as Maasim Tovim Award winner David Kaplan from Mishkan Tefilah, Newton took the stage. A short video featured David at TheRetreat 2015 and his proud family looked on.

Many of our clubs received Torch awards for their programing, and the Sharon, MA club got an award for best overall programming.  The convention included training and interesting speakers (including many from our region.
