In 2012, Girl Scouts of the USA will mark 100 years of inspiring girls and young women with the ideals of courage, confidence and character. Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, with 3.7 million girl and adult members worldwide.

Speaking will be Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council CEO Susan Thompson, Board Chair Beth Walker of Bowles Rice and 2010 Gold Award recipient Skye Taylor. Working in partnership with about 4,000 volunteers, Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council serves nearly 20,000 girls in 61 counties in West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.
The event begins at 11:45 a.m. with informal networking (optional), followed by a luncheon and program at noon. Registration is $25 for Alliance members/$35 future members through April 8. Prices increase to $35 Alliance members/$45 future members after that date.
