Power of the Purse


Do you have questions about what it is expected and what you can bring to the table? What does it take to be viewed as a valuable board member?

Too often, these questions, and others, become barriers for talented community members to seek out service on local nonprofit boards where they can make a difference. The truth is that nonprofits should reflect the communities they serve and a diverse and engaged Board of Directors makes a big difference.

Join us for the eighth annual Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) Power of the Purse event, featuring a dynamic discussion on Philanthropy through Board Leadership: How to Connect, Engage and Inspire. Presented by:

  • Donna H Buzby, CPA, RMA Capaldi Reynolds & Pelosi, P.A.
  • Jill T. Ojserkis, Esquire, Cooper Levenson, P.A.
