JCA Executive Director Update
Since September 1, 2013 the Executive Board of the JCA has been acting as our interim Executive Director while a search has been going on to fill this position on a full time basis.
The search committee has been working with the national Jewish agencies and has culled through dozens of resumes and has even had 4 individuals visit us in Wilkes Barre for face to face interviews. Though worthy candidates on a first pass…at the end of the process the committee did not feel any of these individuals were the right fit for our community.
The process is continuing but the Board has decided that with all the activity happening at the JCC from increased programming to working towards the move to Third Ave that the organization and community will be better served with a full time interim executive. The JCA Board is pleased to announce that at its April Board meeting they appointed Larry Keiser, Esq. as interim Executive Director effective immediately.
Larry is a life long community member involved in all aspects of our institutions being a past president of the JCC, UHI and Temple Israel. Larry knows our community, our organizations and most of you!
Larry has committed to a minimum of 3 months and as long as we need to find the right permanent fit.
Please stop by the JCC and welcome Larry.
