2019 Political Affairs Director Joshua Kirsh was elected President, whilst Leadership and Development Officer Gabriella Davis was elected Vice President at the election held in Melbourne.

“We have a team with such broad experience within the organisation, and I’m so excited to see how they rise to meet the unique challenges of Jewish student life in 2020. Each brings the kind of leadership AUJS needs to move forward into a new decade,” Kirsh said.

“It’s never been a better time to be an AUJS leader,” Davis said, “and I am truly honoured to have been given the chance to help foster and grow the organisation over the next year with such a talented and passionate team.”

Rounding out the executive are Treasurer James Breckler, Public Affairs Coordinator Daniel Elberg, Campaigns Coordinator Carly Rosenberg, Leadership and Development Coordinator Sarah Sack, Conferences Coordinator Shira Rosenblum, Jewish Engagement Coordinator Talia Barsheshet, Fundraising Coordinator Andy Gordon, and the incumbent Chairperson Josef Wilkinson, who will be the new Executive Committee’s Marketing Coordinator.

“The opportunity that I’ve been given to lead this organisation in 2019 is one that I will miss deeply,” Wilkinson reflects. “The experiences, the relationships and the hard work, are things I will take with me for the rest of my life. Bidding farewell, whether to someone or something, is always difficult. It’s made easier by the faith I have in what’s to come. Joshua Kirsh is an incredible individual and with his equally incredible team, I cannot wait to see what AUJS brings in 2020.”

AGMs for AUJS’ regional and campus executives will take place over the next two months.
