New Leadership Elected to the Board

New Board of Directors and Officers Elected

At the YWCA’s Annual Meeting earlier this summer, new volunteer leadership was elected by the membership to guide the organization forward in the coming years.

Elected to their first term as members of the Board of Directors are: Joyce Augustus, Etel Capacchione, Karen Kempskie-Aquino and Brenda Donoghue Seaver.

Elected as officers of the Association until the 2010 Annual Meeting are: Charlene Nemeth, President; Susan Mailman, President Elect; Suzanne Singh Nebelung, Vice President; Ann Carlson, Treasurer; Patricia Maher-Harrington, Assistant Treasurer; Bonnie O’Brien, Clerk; and Hazel Berry, Assistant Clerk.

Each woman is bringing something unique to the table on both the boards.  Joyce Augustus is a former accountant at the YWCA and current Financial Analyst with the Worcester Telegram  & Gazette.

Etel Capacchione has spent most of her professional career as a mediator working in the courts, public schools and now as a Consumer Mediator with the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office.

Karen Kempskie-Aquino is a Business Loan Officer at Webster Five Cents Savings Bank and was recently elected as Executive Director/Treasurer of the Webster Five Foundation.

Brenda Donoghue Seaver has been the Assistant Clerk-Magistrate at the Worcester District Court since 2005 and is the founder of the Girls C.H.O.I.C.E. program, a mentoring program provided in partnership with the YWCA and Big Brothers/Big Sisters that matches professional women in the community with at-risk middle school girls.

Treasurer Ann Carlson is Executive Vice President and Regional Director, Credit Risk Management at Sovereign Bank and has worked for 25 years in commercial banking, 16 of which specialized in the financial and banking needs of healthcare, education and not-for-profit institutions.
