WCSA Treasurer Candidate Statement:

Lauren Dudley

My name is Lauren Dudley, and I ask that you elect me as Treasurer of the Women’s Congressional Staff Association.  I currently serve as Counsel to a Senate committee and have worked full-time on the Hill for 5 years. I am an ideal candidate for this position due to my commitment to the professional development of women on Capitol Hill and my experience overseeing finances for WCSA and large organizations.


In April 2016, I was appointed by the WCSA Board as Treasurer following a vacancy, and I served as Treasurer during the 2017-2018 year.  I hit the ground running by getting trained on our payment and website systems.  I coordinate budget approvals and reimbursements for all WCSA events including the WCSA Annual Summer Conference, and I facilitate dues payments.  On top of serving as Treasurer this past year, I also co-led WCSA’s first Diversity & Inclusion Initiative and co-chaired the WCSA Mentorship Program.


I am qualified to serve as Treasurer of WCSA because of my financial experience.  While in college and law school, I oversaw tens of thousands of dollars in funding and expenditures.  As president of my college rugby team, I oversaw an annual budget of $40,000; submitted requests for state funding; coordinated dues payments; and approved expenditures for equipment, travel, and other costs.  As Editor-in-Chief of the American University International Law Review, I supervised 80 staff members and an annual budget of $60,000 for printing and publication, staff events, and an annual symposium. 


I appreciate your consideration.
