Siobhan Dennehy is the Executive Director of the Emerald Isle Immigration Center (EIIC). Since her appointment in 2003, the agency has increased the budget, staffing and programs significantly, the most significant of which are social service programs, the services provided to their non-Irish clients and the current capital campaign underway for the Bronx building renovation. The center has been able to add two attorneys, several bilingual immigration counseling staff, a full time social worker, and a senior case worker to meet the needs of the clients served. Mental health counseling from qualified psychotherapists in the area of Depression and Alcohol and Drug Abuse, a daily delivery of 40 Meals on their Meals on Wheels Program and ESL classes for non native English speakers are other center service program enhancements. The center sees clients from a wide spectrum of nationalities (75+) and has added to the ranks of multi lingual staff to support the clients who continue to seek EIIC’s help. The agency has maintained a stellar reputation in the community for the front line immigration and social services it provides to immigrants from all around the world, through the hand-picked team of staff and a growing base of volunteers in both offices in Woodlawn and Woodside.
Elected by her peers from the CIIC (Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers in the United States) Dennehy served as Treasurer, Vice President and President; she continues to represent the EIIC at CIIC board level.
Siobhan has received many honors and awards over the years from multiple organizations, including most recently in January 2019, when Siobhan was named as Aide at Large to Brian O’Dwyer, the 2019 Grand Marshall for the NY City 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
This event is hosted by Past President Niall O'Leary.

This quarterly initiative for 2019 provides additional networking events and opportunities for professional women. Inspiring female thought leaders and speakers are selected by the IBO and invited to educate, inspire, and motivate attendees. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to dynamic speakers, network and engage with attendees during these lunch meetings.
This new series is open to IBO members and their guests, including our male members and friends. We happily extend our real business connections and Irish hospitality to all.
How women can break the cycle of abdication and take control of their wealth. The IBO Women’s Networking Committee is delighted to announce our third lunch and second panel discussion, this time shining the spotlight on a group on women who have supported this initiative and have made a profound impact on the world of finance.
For many women in all stages of their personal and professional lives, the investment decision- making process can feel closed-off, inaccessible, or even intimidating — but with the right approach and tools at our disposal, taking control of our finances (and, in doing so, our futures) needn’t feel like a tall order.
Our panelists will provide a wealth of advice to all those interested in breaking into — or strengthening their existing presence in — the sphere of investing. Joining us to discuss this important and fascinating subject are:
Sinead Faughnan, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER, a Private Wealth Advisor and Account Vice President at UBS Financial Services, Inc. With almost 11 years of experience in teaching clients how to make the most suitable financial decisions for their own priorities and concerns, she has a powerful understanding of the steps required to help take full control of one’s investment prospects.
Katherine McGuire is a financial advisor at Cetera Investors, previously known as Foresters Financial Services until a merger in June 2019. Katherine is a powerful advocate of the concept of investment as a means of financial empowerment. Prior to her time with Cetera, she spent 13 years in the sales and financial advisory department of Bishop, Rosen & Co., Inc.
Hosts: IBO Women's Networking Committee and and UBS Financial Services
RSVP: Attendees must RSVP by no later than 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, September 25, 2019.
