Eric Kingsley was elected Regional Board Chair of the Pacific Southwest Regional Board at its Annual Meeting on June 10. The meeting, which took place at the Luxe on Sunset, also featured a panel with Michael Salberg, ADL's International Affairs Director, and David Siegel, Israeli Consul General.
During his acceptance speech, Kingsley told the audience, “We know that there will always be ignorance and evil in the world, but with ADL, we know that when those people emerge, ADL will be there to condemn the conduct, comfort the victims, and perhaps most importantly use the event to educate the rest of society and change attitudes in the process.” He also emphasized his priorities for his tenure as Board Chair as engaging young leaders, reaching out to the larger non-Jewish community, and combatting the anti-Israel movement.
Concurrent with Eric's election as Chair, the Board also elected Vice Chairs Steven Nichols and Michael Garfinkel, Treasurer Ruth Moss and Secretary Ivy Kagan Bierman.
