Business, Government & Regional Affairs

Patricia Morrill

The Business, Government & Regional Affairs Division provides many wonderful ways to get involved. Japan is the destination of the International Business Conference this year. Members can learn more about this important and fascinating country by helping to plan the Conference or the related events put on by the Global Agenda Committee as part of their diverse New York program. For those interested in the opportunities and challenges of serving on a board, The Directorships & Corporate Governance Committee provides training and coaching, and contact with directors who are FWA speakers. The Not-for-Profit Committee educates members about the management functions and career opportunities in this sector, and the Impact Investing Committee explores ways that investing can address social and environmental challenges. For those living or working outside the City, three regional groups in Long Island, New Jersey and Westchester/Southern Connecticut sponsor a variety of informational and networking programs. The Men’s Alliance plans events where men, who are some of our biggest supporters, are encouraged to attend.
