Six of Connecticut’s outstanding female leaders have been appointed to the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame Board, including Kensington resident Lori Budnick as a new trustee.

Budnick (CPA) is a partner and industry leader for Blum Shapiro’s Non-Profit Services Group. She has over 30 years of experience working for community and private foundations, educational institutions, membership- and admission-driven, arts and cultural and human service organizations. She is also a member of Blum Shapiro’s Women Who Lead Social Network.

Joining Budnick on the CWHF’s Board of Trustees are Dr. Sandra Inga, Joaquina Borges King, Meryl Mallery and Roberta (“Bert”) Wachtelhausen.

“All five of our newest board members are exceptional women who embody the spirit of our organization,” said Sarah Smith Lubarsky, executive director of the CWHF. “Each brings a unique talent and energy to the table. We are incredibly fortunate to have them by our side as we continue to honor our mission.”

Sandra Vigliotti Senich has been elected as chairman of the Board of Trustees.

“Our trustees are trailblazers and thought-leaders in their respective fields,” Vigliotti Senich said. “We are proud to have them join us and are excited so see how they help shape the Hall of the future.”
