CEO Message
CEO, Mary Barneby
On Wednesday, May 29, we hosted our Annual Meeting at the North Haven Holiday Inn. More than 200 members and volunteers attended to recognize our outstanding volunteers and receive important updates about the council. We also bid farewell to our Board President, Teresa C. Younger. We will miss her outstanding leadership, dedication, and commitment to our movement, but we wish her the very best in her future endeavors.

We welcome new members to our Board of Directors, and our new officers, particularly our new Board President, Caroline Sloat. Our Board of Directors represents all eight counties throughout the state of Connecticut, consisting of life-long Girl Scouts, prominent community leaders, nonprofit and corporate executives, and many board veterans. The 28 members who now comprise the board will draw from their extensive experience in Girl Scouting, finance, communications, government, education, technology, and marketing and property management to lead us into the next century of Girl Scouting in Connecticut.

I also had the pleasure of attending our annual Gold Award ceremony – an amazing Sunday afternoon at the University of Saint Joseph that recognized 70 young women who earned this honor through hours of hard work, commitment to their community, and leadership skills. Please take a moment to read more about their amazing accomplishments in our Take Action sidebar. These young ladies represent the very best values of Girl Scouting – courage, confidence, and character, and who are making the world and their communities a better place. We expect great things from our Gold Award recipients in the future!

Of course, these young women wouldn’t have accomplished what they have without your guidance and care for building their confidence and supporting their dreams. Thank you for your continued support of Girl Scouting. As you can see, it truly makes a difference in the life of a girl.

Yours in Girl Scouting,

Mary Barneby,
CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut
