Freda Johnson Award

Northeast Women in Public Finance (NEWPF) is pleased to join with The Bond Buyer in presenting our Annual “Freda Johnson Award”, an award dedicated to the efforts and contributions of women in the field of public finance. Named for Freda Johnson, whose highly successful career in public finance has been an inspiration to so many women in the municipal industry, this award recognizes women serving or who have served in public finance who exemplify the qualities that Freda brought to our industry as a “trail blazer,” leader, innovator, and mentor. Each year we honor two women who have distinguished themselves in public finance within the private and the public sector.
