NSW Premier to address Board of Deputies AGM – August 21

The Premier has a longstanding, supportive relationship with the Jewish community since being elected to the seat of Willoughby in 2003. Before being voted in as Premier after Mike Baird retired in January 2017, she held senior parliamentary positions including Treasurer, Minister for Industrial Relations and Minister for Transport.

“Our work in the political sector has been highlighted in recent months by the passage of legislation outlawing incitement to violence – a cause on which we had been working for over a decade,” said Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff said. “It is fitting that the Premier will address the AGM as it highlights our strong co-operation with the State Government and the work which we do to benefit the community and all of NSW.”

The AGM will be an opportunity for the community to focus on work which the Board has done in a range of sectors, including media, intercultural, education and NGO.

It will also mark the culmination of Jeremy Spinak’s four-year presidency; if executive positions are contested, elections for the new leadership team will be held.

The AGM will take place at 7:30pm on August 21 at the Sydney Jewish Museum Education Centre in Darlinghurst.
