The Hadera-Eiron Southeast Consortium Partnership honored Jacksonville resident, Iris Kraemer for her outstanding service at their most recent steering committee meeting in Richmond, Va. Kraemer completed her term as the Southeast U.S. Consortium Volunteer Chair for its cherished partnership with Hadera-Eiron. During her time as Consortium Chair, Kraemer worked closely with executive directors, Partnership staff and volunteers in all 11 of the shared communities including Richmond, Charlotte, Charleston, Jacksonville, Volusia, Fort Myers, Pinellas, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville in the United States and Hadera-Eiron in Israel. She was instrumental in working with volunteers to encourage participation and leadership in programming in addition to overseeing the formation of the newest and incredibly successful program for community young leaders called Leadership2Gether.
P2G is so grateful to Kraemer for her vision, leadership and support over these last three years. Although she has completed her term, she will no doubt be present at Partnership programs in the future. "Iris did a great job as chair for our Partnership and we are looking forward to her leadership for our Federation as she will be the 2018 campaign chair,” Jewish Federation of Jacksonville Executive Director Alan Margolies said.
