Fox Cities Leadership Event Opportunity

Women in leadership have unique talents to offer, so why do so many of us hold back from a leadership role in our professional lives? We invite area professionals, Girl Scout volunteers, Girl Scouts and their caregivers in and around the Fox Cities to join us for a special networking event you won’t want to miss.

When: Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Kathi Seifert

Where: Bridgewood Resort Hotel & Conference Center, 1000 Cameron Way, Neenah, WI

Time: 6-7 p.m., networking with other Fox Cities professionals; 7-8 p.m., Dare to Lead with Kathi Seifert

Nationally-recognized business leader Kathi Seifert presents Dare to Lead. Ms. Seifert served as Corporate Executive Vice President – Personal Care of Kimberly-Clark Corporation, a global health and hygiene company, from 1999 until her retirement in June 2004. Prior to joining Kimberly-Clark, Ms. Seifert held management positions at Procter & Gamble, Beatrice Foods Inc., and Fort Howard Paper Company. Ms. Seifert is widely known for her engagement in advancing diversity efforts involving woman and different ethnic groups by fostering networks of communication throughout various regions in the business workplace.

This event will be of special interest to women and girls (ages 11–17), and anyone who desires to further their leadership skills and confidence. There is no cost to attend, but a donation to Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes will be encouraged and gratefully accepted. Space is limited so please register and reserve your spot today.

August Update: Birch Trails and Pow Low Enhancements

MetalRoof2As summer winds down and camp season commences, work on improvements at  two of our camp properties continues full steam ahead!

Camp Birch Trails: The metal roof and interior walls are in place and it finally looks like a shower house! The substantial completion date for the shower house remains September 15, 2014 the final completion date is set for September 24. Our 2015 campers will love this new amenity!

Camp Pow Low: Due to some initial permitting delays, the Pow Low shower house and troop house remodel will not begin until the first week of September. The permit for the troop house remodel has now been approved. The substantial completion date for these projects are still set for October 15, 2014 with the final completion date slated for approximately October 29, 2014.

Information on both projects are regularly updated in the Connect (volunteer) e-newsletter and on our Volunteer Connect website. Questions about the projects or timing may be directed to
