Women in Public Finance (WPF) is a
nonprofit, educational and professional networking organization for women in
the municipal finance industry. Founded in 1997, WPF began with a concentration
in the mid-west, but has expanded its reach over the years through current
formation of 20 regional Chapters and ultimately drawing interest and
participation from all over the United States. Members in the organization
represent many facets of the industry and include state and local government
issuers, investment bankers, commercial bankers, attorneys, financial advisors,
rating agency analysts, bond insurers, and trust officers, among others. The
organization’s activities include an annual conference to gather these
professionals together for an educational and networking forum, a mentorship
program, educational activities such as webinars, philanthropic and community service
events throughout the year, and support of the regional chapters.
Women in Public Finance is governed by an 19-member volunteer Board of
Directors made up of women of diverse backgrounds in various stages of their
careers within the public finance profession, including attorneys, financial
advisors, investment bankers, underwriters, trust officers, credit analysts,
bond insurers and issuers. Each Director
serves a three-year term, and each year the Board selects the new class of
Board members. Board members typically
have at least five years of experience within public finance and are committed
to continuing a career in public finance.
The Board coordinates benefits
for WPF members through the following committees:

five hours per month to Board duties. Additional time may be required for
periodic Board events, including but not limited to the annual Conference,
