Executive Membership Kadima VP

Hey Seaboard! My name is Abby Elson and I am thrilled to serve as your 2017-2018 Executive Membership/Kadima Vice President! When I moved to Maryland a few years ago, I was nervous not knowing anyone at my first USY convention.  However, I was immediately welcomed into this incredible Seaboard USY family. Since then, I have developed a passion for USY and love everything that the organization stands for. My goal is to further create this welcoming and inclusive environment for every single person who walks into a Seaboard event; longtime member or first-timer.

I absolutely love meeting new people and making new friends, so please come up and say “hi” at the next USY or Kadima event!  Seaboard, get ready for a year full of new friends, new experiences, and so much ruach!
