The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is pleased to announce that GFWC Executive Director Natasha Kalteis has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National Council of Women’s Organizations, the nation’s only national coalition representing more than 200 groups and more than 10 million women across the country.
“NCWO is delighted to have Natasha join our board,” said NCWO Executive Director Kimberly Otis. “The mission and vision of GFWC are closely aligned with that of NCWO, and I know that Natasha’s experience and insight will be a benefit to all of our member organizations.”
Natasha began her tenure as executive director in September 2006, bringing significant institutional knowledge and experience gained as GFWC's Meetings and Convention Director (1998-2004) and as the owner of her own consulting business.
“GFWC is fortunate to have an executive director whose energy and innovation are surpassed only by her commitment to our organization,” said GFWC International President Jacquelyn Pierce.
As executive director, Natasha works directly with the GFWC Board of Directors to continue the 117-year old mission of the organization, develop and implement strategic planning initiatives, and oversee financial management, membership services, public relations, and communications. In addition, as the chief staff officer, she is responsible for managing the GFWC Headquarters and staff, which includes the GFWC Women’s History and Resource Center, and representing the organization on numerous boards, coalitions, and working groups.
Prior to her work with GFWC, she was involved in providing continuing education to faculty and staff as part of Georgetown University medical center’s organizational training and development department. She also has also worked in investment banking, government relations, and higher education.
As a community leader, Natasha serves on the boards of directors for the Friends of Stead Park and the Dupont Circle Citizen’s Association as the education chair. She holds a bachelors degree from American University, and resides in Washington, D.C., with her husband and daughter.
