The Women in Public Finance – Texas Chapter was founded in 2012 as a chapter of the national organization, Women in Public Finance (www.wpfc.com). The goal of Women in Public Finance – Texas Chapter is to advance leadership opportunities for women by fostering relationships and providing educational activities and forums. Participants include state and local government issuers, not-for-profit issuers, investment bankers, attorneys, financial advisors, rating agency analysts, trust officers, and municipal market investors. The Texas chapter provides opportunities for personal contact among our regional members and regional activities that complement the more nationally focused activities of the national organization. Current plans for regional events include educational forums and panel discussions at colleges and universities.
The goal of the Texas chapter is to strengthen the next generation of women leaders in the public finance industry in Texas. Our members concentrate our mentoring efforts both for women currently working in the public finance industry and for younger women in college and high school. For current public finance professionals, we provide strong role models and opportunities for discussion about the specific challenges facing working women. For young women in college and high school, we promote the benefits of careers in public finance and encourage them to pursue public finance careers.
