Cindy Arenberg Seltzer is the first president/CEO of the Children’s Services Council of Broward County. She has carefully guided the development of the organization, which was created by the voters of Broward County in September 2000, and reauthorized by the voters in 2014. She works to transform young lives through a focus on supporting proven programs delivered by more than 100 “provider” agencies that achieve measurable outcomes, while ensuring transparency and accountability to the taxpayers of Broward County.
She serves on several boards of directors, including the Early Learning Coalition, the Coordinating Council of Broward, the Children and Families Leadership Association, the Children’s Movement of Florida, the Florida Afterschool Network, the Pediatric Angel Foundation, and the Harvard Kennedy School’s Taubman Center for State and Local Government Advisory Board. She also hosts the local television show, “Future First: Focus on Broward’s Children.”
In addition to her official duties, Cindy can often be found working in Broward’s neighborhoods to raise money for its children. For example, she participated in the first season of Dancing with the Stars for the Pantry of Broward and Singing with the Stars to benefit Neighbors 4 Neighbors; she also worked the counter at McDonald’s to raise money to fight Sickle Cell, and she was a Celebrity Chef for FLIPANY.
Cindy has a BA in psychology from the University of California at Irvine, a JD from Georgetown University Law Center, and a MPA from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
