Federation to hold 2022 Annual Meeting on June 15

By Reporter staff

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton will hold its 2022 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, June 15, at 7 pm. There will be no program, although ice cream sundaes will be served. The event will include the election of the new Board of Directors. The Federation’s Annual Report will be available at the meeting in hard copy. It will also appear on the Federation website and in the June 3 issue of The Reporter. 

“Because of concerns of the increasing cases of COVID, while we hope to hold the meeting in person, we’re aware that we might have to go virtual at the last minute,” said Federation Executive Director Shelley Hubal. “That’s one reason why we are not scheduling a program for the event. Our priority is to keep everyone safe.” 

Hubal also noted that community members should call her at 222-9026 on the day of the meeting in case there is another COVID surge and the meeting has to go virtual.
