Introducing the NYSAC Women 's Leadership Roundtable

By Nicole Correia, NYSAC Communication Coordinator
NYSAC is proud to launch the Women's Leadership Roundtable, an initiative that will debut at the 2017 Legislative Conference. This new resource aims to support and encourage women holding county office, to enhance the effectiveness of female county officials, and to engage women in seeking leadership positions in their communities and within NYSAC.

According to a 2015 ICMA report, the number of women serving in Chief Administrative Officer positions within
local governments has not increased in 30 years- that number remains 13%. There are many challenges and
barriers to increasing this number, and the Women's Leadership Roundtable seeks to examine some of these,
discuss how counties can attract more women to leadership positions, and to assist female county officials in their
career development.

The primary goals of the NYSAC Women's Leadership Roundtable are to support and encourage women holding county offices, to enhance the effectiveness of female county officials, and to engage women in seeking leadership positions in their communities and within NYSAC.
