Annual Calendar

Each year, our Utah Section sponsors social, charitable and cause-related events. We invite our members to participate in events, take part in organizing events, step up to leadership roles (membership, correspondence, programming, hiking club, snowshoe club, ski club, board) and suggest new activities. Click on the individual activity to learn dates and details.

Here is a brief overview of our annual calendar.

Lobbying Clinic

January

NCJW UT participates with CORC (Coalition of Religious Communities) in a lobbying day at the Capitol.

NCJW Day on Capitol Hill Page

February

NCJW UT, in January, participates with the Community Action Partnership (CAP) in its Democracy Day on the Hill. That day, we hear from speakers, learn how to lobby, eat lunch with legislators and, with docents, tour the Capitol. While we lunch, participants talk with legislators about issues and upcoming bills consistent with NCJW principles.

Ski Day

March

A favorite social event, join fellow members on the slopes for a fun day.

Officer Election

June

We hold nominations and elections for the board every two years, in June. We encourage members to become board members.

Hiking Outing

June-October

We wish to start a hiking club. However, until we have a facilitator for this, we will have monthly hikes June through October. Want to hike or walk in our beautiful area? Contact Rochelle Kaplan for more info or to offer suggestions and help.

Membership Brunch

August

Our annual membership brunch usually features panelists on a theme. Past years have featured local Jewish women artists and scientists, women in local politics, and directors of local conservation groups. But in 2012, we honored Esther Landa’s long service. For more info, contact Eileen Hallet Stone.

Halloween Party for Women’s Shelter

Each year, NCJW Utah sponsors a Halloween party for SLC’s homeless women and their children. Contact Gina Dalton 801-651-5757
