We need you - Sub committees

02/12/2019 01:05:40 PM


Last year, as incoming President, I gave a commitment to conduct a root and branch review of Caulfield Hebrew Congregation including all systems and processes in order to ensure that we are appropriately placed to achieve our strategic goals.

In accordance with the powers conferred under the constitution, [Clause 29 part 1 (e)], in 5779 the Board approved the establishment of sub-committees across the whole spectrum of management and strategic planning for the Caulfield Hebrew Congregation.

As you would be aware, as a result of a Constitutional amendment this year, the Executive and Board have been elected for a period of 2 years.

We have requested the Chairs of the sub-committees, and the new Board members where appropriate, to accept an appointment for the next 2 years and they have agreed to continue/renew their role.

Sub-committee members will now also be asked to commit to two years in line with the change of the Constitution to a two-year term for the Board.

The various sub-committees have contributed greatly to the transformation of the CHC over the past year. Thank you to those sub-committee members who actively contributed in 5779 to their sub-committee. We are looking to you to renew your interest to participate as an active member for the next 2 years.

We are of the view that it is appropriate and important to invite our members and seat holders to once again have the opportunity to consider their participation in one or more of these sub-committees for the next 2 years. The six sub-committees represent a unique opportunity for our members and seat holders to actively participate in the management and direction of the organisation.

This endeavour is part of a drive to increase engagement from our membership and to assist the Board in delivering the right outcomes for the CHC. As a result, I welcome you to give consideration to applying for a position on a sub-committee that can utilise your input and expertise. We want active members of these sub-committees who are ready to contribute to the future of the CHC.

The sub-committees are as follows:

1. Finance, Audit and Risk (risk management, finances, human capital management, fundraising) – New chair Martin Meier

2. Governance and Strategy (governance, strategic review) - New chair Adam Joel

3. Child Safety Committee (a sub-committee of the Governance and Strategy Committee) - New sub-committee and new Chair Dr Mim Weisz

4. Congregational (spiritual services) – Limited spaces available- Chair –Dr Howard Zeimer

5. Engagement and Programs (membership, hospitality, communication education, activities, leadership, social action and wellbeing) - Chair David Mond / Deputy Chair, Dr. Hugo Gold.

6. Community Centre (redevelopment) - Chair Rodney Horin

It is anticipated that these sub-committees will meet approximately 6 times a year and report to the Board. If you would like to register your interest to join one or more of these sub-committees, please complete a short application form (click here). For further information regarding the sub-committees and their terms of reference please email

Please respond on or before the 16th December 2019

With very best wishes,

David Mond, President CHC
