Last night at our AGM, Shlomo Werdiger announced that he was stepping down as President of UIA and that Nathan Shafir OAM, our Vice President would be stepping into the role.
Shlomo was presented with a Federal Askan Award by UIA Australia’s President Harold Finger OAM and the Key to Jerusalem Award by Greg Masel, Director General Keren Hayesod-UIA.
We say THANK YOU and KOL HAKAVOD to Shlomo for 10 years of dedicated and loyal service as President UIA Victoria. We thank him for his wholehearted devotion, support, guidance and exemplary leadership throughout this time. On behalf of UIA Victoria we wish Shlomo all the best for his future endeavours.
