Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland welcomed Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA, as the keynote speaker during our Annual Meeting on April 11, 2015, in Wichita!
As Chief Executive Officer, Anna partners with the national staff and board of directors to lead GSUSA’s 2.8 million-member organization. Her career journey, her service as an award-winning community leader, and her contributions to Girl Scouting serve as an inspiration to others. The Annual Meeting also included a Recognition Luncheon and awards ceremony for our council's many dedicated volunteers, along with the Gold and Silver Award recipients.
