This conference has been really great and I’ve learned a lot about the new directions in the JCC movement. But, the most important learning I have experienced in the past two days has been about recognizing who I am as a professional and celebrating how much I have grown.
At my last professional conference, I was only 6 years in the field and still learning what it really means to make working in the JCC movement a career. Now, with 100% more years under my belt, I feel I understand the field much better and that my participation in the conference is no longer an introduction to the field, but an affirmation that I am making the JCC world my home.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this conference a success. Working at the JCCs has been a terrific professional and Jewish journey.
