I hope you have participated in one or many of our diverse programs and took advantage of the fabulous women’s network we have created within the Harvard Business School community. We have many dedicated board members and officers who have helped to make this possible.

We are now asking for nominations for two officer positions which will be open beginning July 1st. You may nominate yourself or suggest someone you know who would be terrific in the role. If you wish to work with another woman, you may nominate yourselves as Co-VPs. These positions are board level positions; you will be members of the HBSWANY Board of Directors.

Please get involved if you wish to have a leadership position. Like any organization, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. As past President and current Chairman and Board Member, I can say that it has been a tremendous experience for me; I have forged deep relationships, both personally and professionally.

The two officer positions available, VP Programming and VP Finance, are outlined follow:
  • VP of Programming - Accountable for insuring we have high quality and frequent programs, which is the core of how we engage our membership. This includes:
    • Sourcing events - fielding & shepherding ideas; reaching out for specific speakers/subjects of interest.
    • Overseeing Event Chairs - guiding Event Chairs through the logistics of specific events, as well as attending the events or insuring another Board member attends to represent the HBSWANY leadership team.
    • Working with the VP Membership/Communications to promote the events.
    • Leading role as a Board Member; VP Programming maintains and shares the calendar of events with the board at quarterly board meetings.
  • VP Finance – Oversees the financial function including review of bank statements, review of tax return prepared by outside accountant and insuring compliance standards are met. This includes:
    • Monthly reconciliation of bank statements.
    • Preparation of income and expense reports from our on-line system called Alumni Magnet.
    • Prepare source documents for 990 tax return and review prepared return.
    • Complete annual filing to certify compliance with credit card security standards.
    • Leading role as a Board Member; VP Finance discusses financial reports and reviews tax returns with board at quarterly meetings.
Engage with us and see how meaningful your contribution will be to you and Harvard Business School Women’s Association of New York!
