What is NEWPF?
Northeast Women in Public Finance is a not-for-profit professional organization for women who work in private or public sector firms or organizations that are engaged in public finance. We offer educational and networking events as well as a mentoring program with the goal of creating opportunities for our members and participants to enhance their career opportunities and share insights about issues impacting the public finance industry. We invite you to learn more about the benefits of membership and how to join.
The Benefits of Membership
Since 2006, NEWPF has developed a network of over 1,000 women in the Northeast ranging from seasoned veterans to our industries' most upcoming talent. NEWPF brings together professionals from across the Municipal Finance market by providing opportunities to connect directly with leaders in our industry to gain insight and to share knowledge. Our members engage one another frequently on ever-evolving market and credit issues.
Membership in NEWPF provides for the opportunity to develop and strengthen these important relationships through participation in our events and mentoring programs. By becoming a member of NEWPF, you will grow your professional network and have opportunities to further develop your career. All members participate (free of charge) in all of our educational and networking events.
Freda Johnson Award
Northeast Women in Public Finance (NEWPF) is pleased to join with The Bond Buyer in presenting our Annual “Freda Johnson Award”, an award dedicated to the efforts and contributions of women in the field of public finance. Named for Freda Johnson, whose highly successful career in public finance has been an inspiration to so many women in the municipal industry, this award recognizes women serving or who have served in public finance who exemplify the qualities that Freda brought to our industry as a “trail blazer,” leader, innovator, and mentor. Each year we honor two women who have distinguished themselves in public finance within the private and the public sector.
