If you are interested in getting more involved with the WBC and getting more out of your membership, consider joining one of our committees. Committee involvement is a great way to meet other members and we have many different roles to suit your skill set and schedule.
If interested please contact the Committee Chair via email to register your interest. You should also feel free to talk to our Committee Chairwomen at any of our events.
Co-Chaired by Board Members Dana Bober (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Allison Poliniak-Cusic (email@example.com) the Events Committee plans monthly events for the Women’s Bond Club, working closely with the corporate member firms that sponsor and host the events. The committee may also be involved with some of the smaller, targeted events that are held each year. Committee work includes identifying corporate member firms to host events and assisting the host with brainstorming concepts for each event. In instances where there are two or more corporate sponsors for an event, the ability to facilitate communication and coordination is required. Committee members may also be called upon at the actual events to help register attendees and answer questions.
We need three volunteers who have some knowledge of event planning, strong attention to detail and in general, the ability and desire to attend as many events as possible. We also have a renewed focus on obtaining, interpreting and utilizing attendance metrics for more targeted planning opportunities. The time commitment averages 2 to 3 hours per event. Participation can be performed individually or as part of a team of committee members. Most of the required participation can be done over the telephone with occasional in-person meetings. The committee meets monthly either in-person or via conference call.

Corporate Outreach Membership & Rising Star
Co-Chaired by Board Members Elizabeth Fischer (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Deirdre O’Connor (Deirdreoconnorkenny@gmail.com) . This committee identifies and targets financial service firms whose diversity programs could benefit from membership in the Women’s Bond Club and/or firms who would further complement the WBC corporate membership roster. The committee taps into the WBC’s broad network when targeting new corporate member firms, prepares presentation material, educates senior executive decision makers regarding Women’s Bond Club benefits and initiates on-boarding of both new corporate and individual members.
Co-Chairs and committee members work with existing corporate members to maximize membership value and “tee up” new initiatives as appropriate. In addition, members often assist current corporate member firms with their own outreach and networking events. The committee also works with our corporate member firms and other industry groups to identify and share best practices. Committee members should be able to work independently as well as in collaboration with a team. Most committee work is flexible and can be completed as the member’s schedule permits. Corporate Outreach meets monthly either in person or via conference call and the time commitment is 5-10 hour/month including the monthly meeting.

Chaired by Board Member Liliana Robu (email@example.com) and Cindy Deville (Cindy.T.Deville@Chase.com).

Initially, the committee will focus on defining requirements and researching state of the art technology platforms and products to replace existing membership and event management systems, including CRM, document repositories/file sharing, reporting, financials, website content management, eBlasts, social media, and event management. The committee will also define and execute the migration and implementation plan, including procurement, defining workflows, managing vendors, system setup and configuration, migrating historical data, creating reports. The committee needs volunteers with IT systems architecture, technical, and project management skills. The time commitment will ultimately depend on the selected solution and is likely to be between 4 to 8 hours per month including twice-monthly committee conference calls.
