JSS Welcomes Dawn Berney as Executive Director
Linda Reivitz, President of the Jewish Social Services Board of Directors, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dawn Berney as the agency’s new executive director effective September 1st. According to Reivitz, Ms. Berney is a “perfect fit” for the position.
“She has the program knowledge we need,” Reivitz said, “as well as experience in strategic planning and evaluation. Beyond that she, and her family, are long time volunteers for JSS. She knows well our programs and the needs of our clients.” Reivitz said special thanks are due to the members of search committee --Howard Fried, Kris Rasmussen, Nan Youngerman, and Rochelle Klaskin --for their diligence and hard work.
Also, we thank Terrie Goren for her commitment to the agency over the past five years. Terrie brought JSS through the transition from sharing an executive director with the Jewish Federation of Madison to its having its own executive director. We are very grateful to her for all of her work through this time.
Below is a letter from Dawn Berney, where she introduces herself.
