Admin History/Bio
United Jewish Welfare Fund's annual general meeting is the annual gathering of general delegates and members of the UJA Federation Council. In general, the Annual Meeting is adjourned after the introductory speeches, then the Council convenes for its meeting, adjourns and the Annual Meeting is re-convened. The Council is made up of delegates representing synagogues, agencies, schools, communal organizations, societies and landsmenshaften of the Toronto community. It is responsible for electing the Federation President, Governors and directors of UJA Federation, as well as appointing auditors, introducing and approving the by-laws of UJA Federation/UJWF. Until 2005, the AGM included the presentation of the Shem Tov volunteer recognition awards, the Leadership Development Awards, the Ben Sadowski Award of Merit for outstanding volunteer contributions, and beginning in 1997, the Phil Granovsky Award for Campaign Excellence. The AGM was usually followed by a reception.
Starting in 1975, when the merger of CJC's Central Region and UJWF was initiated, there continued to be multiple annual meetings for the organizations that today are encompassed by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. In the second half of the 1970s, during the interim period before the adoption of a constitution for the new Toronto Jewish Congress, CJC and UJWF, though they began to have joint meetings and programs, continued to operate separately with separate executives. Once the establishment of TJC was finalized, UJWF "ceas[ed] to exist as a functional community organization" but remained as a "wholly owned subsidiary" of TJC. UJWF remained a legal entity and a partner in the United Jewish Appeal campaign, and was separate insofar as it produced its own financial reports and held its own annual meetings. Similarly, the UJA, as a program of UJWF, held its own annual meetings.
