Thank you for a great conference!
The 2016 JPRO Network Conference brought together hundreds of Jewish community professionals for professional development and networking; showcasing the leading thinkers, activists and teachers who are advancing our communities and the Jewish people. The program highlighted best practices and newest developments, at times questioning assumptions as well as exploring creative solutions to existing issues. There were skill-strengthening workshops and social gatherings with ample opportunities for networking. The conference was designed to enhance professional development, strengthening the professionals and the field in which they work. Participants were inspired and energized. We are grateful for the support of all of our sponsors, speakers, and attendees.
Strong networks and opportunities for career growth lead to higher levels of job satisfaction and career longevity. A conference that brings together participants from diverse professional practices in the North American Jewish community, at all levels, directly contributes to building a pipeline for future leadership. Participants have the opportunity to learn from role models, consider varying career paths, and meet colleagues doing similar work in different fields and localities. This is what a professional field looks like.
