We had the privilege of working with Beth Little, Candidate At-Large for Summit Council, during her tenure as a board member and volunteer at The Connection. Ms. Little served on the Board of Trustees at The Connection for more than five years. She served on the Winterfest fundraiser for ten years, and then chaired the Mardi Gras fundraiser.  She served on the Capital Campaign and Personnel Committees. Additionally, as a gymnastics parent at The Connection, she founded the Summies Parent Organization and served as the head of the organization for seven years.

When Ms. Little dedicates herself to an organization, she is all in. She donates her time, energy and money. She does not casually sit on a board and let others shoulder the workload. She digs in, researches, questions, collaborates and builds. Her background as an attorney served the organization well, both in terms of her critical thinking skills and legal perspective. We have great admiration and gratitude for Ms. Little’s contributions to The Connection.

A key strength that will serve Ms. Little well on Summit Council is her insistence on financial transparency and clarity. Ms. Little understands the enormous responsibility board members take on to protect the best interests of an organization. Ms. Little analyzed the financial documentation provided at board meetings, and asked for clarification from the Director, the Treasurer and the Finance Committee. Her persistence in seeking financial clarity raised the bar in terms of all board members understanding the organization’s financials better and making more thoughtful financial decisions.

Finally, through her work at The Connection, Ms. Little had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of some of the underserved communities within Summit. During her time at The Connection, Ms. Little worked to meet the needs of seniors, ESL individuals, working families in need of after school care for their children and disabled individuals.

We are proud to stand behind and support Beth Little for Summit Council, At Large.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
