Lessons in Leadership at August Execs
Posted on 08/19/2012 @ 11:00 AM
On Saturday night we were joined by Officers of BBYO's Board of Directors: Chairwoman Estee Portnoy, Walter Solomon, Marc Saperstein, Stacy Schusterman, Rachel Gebaide, Howard Wohl, Rob Ruby, and BBYO's Executive Director, Matt Grossman.
It was an honor to welcome them to be a part of our August Execs community for Shabbat and dinner, and it was a privilege to be able to learn from them.
The visiting Officers also participated in a program where they sat on a panel to discuss "Lessons in Leadership" and they shared their own experiences with the Execs Body.
This program was led by Grand Aleph Godol, Logan Miller and International N'siah, Sarah Minion. Logan and Sarah asked a series of questions and each officer had only 60-seconds to give their answer. It was really unique to hear about the different experiences they each have had.
They encouraged all of us, and the Alephs and BBGs at home, to think creatively, dream big, face challenges and to not be afraid to make mistakes.
Many thanks to the Officers of BBYO's Board of Directors and for all of the adults who support what we do in our Chapters, Regions and on the international level.
From strength to strength, we strengthen each other.
