Jersey Shore's Five New Board Members

New Jersey's Asbury Park Press reports that Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore welcomed five new board members during its Annual Meeting on May 19.

Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, Colleen Connolly, Maureen Crinigan, Patricia Downs and Rhonda Figeroa joined the Board of Directors as members-at-large with two-year terms. They join returning board members Robin Fitzmaurice, Karen Kavanagh, Helene Koseff, Marie Lucier-Woodruff, Janet Malkemes, Anne Nachman and Rosalind Seawright, all elected to serve an additional two years. Also rejoining the board is JoAnn McCann, previously serving as immediate past president and continuing on as a member-at-large.

Each new board member brings a unique background and expertise to the board, which is tasked with providing guidance and support as the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore implements programs to more than 15,000 girls in Monmouth and Ocean counties. Girl Scouts are always seeking volunteers at every level, from community members who can only give a few hours at a time to those willing to make a year-long commitment to supporting girls in their town.
