Club Leaders

Clubs generally need to place annual activities on your synagogue calendar during the summer prior to the fiscal year.   Extensive planning, budgeting and volunteer opportunities go into these decisions. Write it up so your program may be replicated.  New volunteers often present themselves to you when you least expect them.  This one-stop sample calendar offers a big picture about International, Regional and Club-wide programming. 

Region Leaders

The Regional leaders are encouraged to plan at least two years in advance.  Also distribute your program calendar at least one year in advance before the summer. This long range planning is important so your clubs can then plan their events without conflicting with the region’s calendar. 

  • Regional Leaders are the eyes and ears ensuring that each club has access to the basic tools to run a successful program. 
  • Regional leaders have close access to the International Program Leaders. They may offer suggestions.
  • Regional leaders encourage club leaders to submit for Torch Awards and Quality Club Awards. These awards provide recognition to clubs for excellence in programming and overall club activities.

If you have suggestions, please consult with your own club President. Your actions are where FJMC learns about new and successful initiatives.  FJMC proudly highlights excellent club programs.
