Sue Nemeth

For more than two decades, Nemeth has helped secure the resources for CAWP's regional and national Forums for Women State Legislators, the national expansion of NEW Leadership residential programs for college women and Ready to Run® nonpartisan campaign trainings, and its newest national initiative Teach a Girl to Lead. To engage prominent women and men in the mission of the Center, Nemeth is helping establish Endowed Legacy Funds honoring the lifetime achievements of donors. Nemeth created the popular Women of Power networking event to underwrite CAWP’s flagship educational programs in New Jersey. Nemeth provides ongoing training and fundraising guidance to ensure the success of CAWP’s partner programs across the country.

Nemeth began her public service career with New Jersey Citizen Action in the 1980s, organizing a statewide coalition of women's advocates to lobby for path-breaking family and medical leave legislation. Nemeth is active in Princeton where she lives with her family, having served on Princeton Township Committee from 2009 through 2012 and as Deputy Mayor in 2011. During her tenure as a municipal official, Nemeth helped create the Princeton Ridge Preserve, rebuild the Community Park Pool Complex and enact the historic merger of Princeton Township and Borough.

Nemeth earned a B.A. from Douglass College at Rutgers University, an A.A. from Middlesex County College and completed the mini-MBA program at the Rutgers Center for Management Development.
