Chávez spoke with Houston Chronicle reporter Anna Gallegos about her expectations for the organization, which will turn 100 in 2012. When asked about her priorities for the Girl Scouts, Chávez answered,
"What I'm very excited about is the opportunity we have currently because we are about to turn 100 years old. I have the great honor of being part of a team that is really going to start going external with our message. We're really ready to talk to the world about girls, issues that are important to them, and how we are developing leaders for this country and the world. I think it's really focusing on ... the investment in girls. What I'm talking about is really expressing the relevance of Girl Scouts for not only girls, but for this country."
