2018 Fall Seminar Workshop

Women's Leadership Roundtables
Monday, September 24 
Rochester, NY 

About the Workshop:

Last fall, dozens of women in county government gathered for the NYSAC Women's Leadership Council Roundtable Workshop. NYSAC is proud to bring this award-winning session back for a second year. 
Join your colleagues from across the state for this unique opportunity to connect and share experiences across regions and party lines, learn from one another, support other women in government, and acquire new leadership skills. This workshop is a positive environment in which to discuss the challenges, the responsibilities, and the opportunities of being a woman in county government.
All attendees will participate in roundtable discussions on the following topics, with these expert facilitators:
  • 1st Amendment 1st Vote: Engaging Young Women in Voting and the Political Process 
    Facilitated by Dr. Karen King, Director, Erie County Commission on the Status of Women 
  • Leading in Your Community 
    Facilitated by Angelicia A. Morris, Executive Director, Schenectady County Human Rights Commission 
  • Fundraising & Campaigning
    Facilitated by Martha Robertson, Chair, Tompkins County Legislature 
  • Personal & Professional Growth for Women in Government
    Facilitated by Marte Sauerbrey, Chair, Tioga County Legislature

Here's what attendees at last year's event had to say:

"Thank you for a fantastic event. You truly nailed the roundtable discussions and guest speakers. I personally walked away with great advice and a lift to continue to lead and support other women in leadership."
"Loved the roundtable format. Intimate and active learning. Panels and webinars are informative but passive - this topic is better served with the active engagement we had today."
"Thank you for your outstanding work in putting the inaugural event together.  I believe it was well needed and wonderfully received!  Also thanks to NYSAC for recognizing the need and interest and supporting the effort."
"This was such a nice event...I so enjoyed meeting other elected women from around the state."
"Excellent! The in-person interaction was great."
"Roundtable discussions were a good way to get multiple, diverse opinions and reflections."
"These discussions were great. The personal touch pushed it over the top to a truly excellent event."
