The Herald noted that Miller ‘sits at the apex of arguably the most effective interest group of the state. The board, as the umbrella for 61 groups, sidesteps internal power struggles and religious divisions within the Jewish community to present a coherent message to government and other agencies.’ The activities of the Board, including engagement with politicians and its education programs, was also mentioned.

The Herald wrote that Miller, 34 and Board Vice-Presidents Yaron Finkelstein, 39 and Jeremy Spinak, 28, are the youngest team to be elected to the Board.

The role of Vic Alhadeff was also cited as chief executive and official spokesman for the Board, noting his previous role as editor of the Australian Jewish News and his regular appearances in the media.
