Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute Creating Financially Savvy Women

Thursday, April 10, 2014

The Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute will present a series of financial seminars for women entitled Women Know: Finance in the Boardroom beginning Wednesday, April 30.

Women Know: Finance in the Boardroom is a seminar developed by CWLI with the purpose of increasing the savviness of women serving on Boards of Directors. Topics covered over the course of 5 working lunch sessions include:  Reading and interpreting a financial statement; “No Money, No Mission” – importance of integration of finance and strategic planning; “So, Now You’re on the Board” – roles and responsibilities of the not-for-profit board member, fundraising and development; and Panel discussion on board leadership.

 

“The CWLI Finance in the Boardroom series was a great introduction to learning how to become an effective board member,” said Jennifer McIntyre, financial advisor for Raymond James & Associates, “Knowing how to read balance sheets and income statements is critical and this series helped me gain the confidence I needed to know that I am making a difference on the boards I am a part of.”

The five-part course will be presented in an engaging and interactive style, facilitated by Carol Newton, director of Acute Pace of Care for Catholic Health Initiatives; and Stefanie Crowe, executive vice president & director of Wealth Services for CapitalMark Bank & Trust.  Additional community leaders will serve as presenters and panelists throughout the program.

Sessions will be held weekly on Wednesdays at Blood Assurance, 705 E. 4th Street, from April 30 to May 28, from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.  The cost is $125 for CWLI members and $150 for non-members and includes session materials and lunch.  Visit www.cwli.org for additional information and to register. Registration and pre-payment are required.
