WASHINGTON, D.C. - The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) announced that Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) Chief Executive Officer Anna Maria Chávez will be honored with the 2012 Chairman’s Award at “A Celebration of Women Entrepreneurship in America” during the USHCC Legislative Summit gala. The Summit will take place in Washington, D.C., on March 21-23, 2012, at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center.
The annual gala honors the impact of Hispanic businesswomen in America and features high-profile leaders and attendees including Chávez, who will receive the coveted Chairman’s Award.

I look forward to a future in which our young girls will be standing in my place for their remarkable and meaningful achievements.”
The Girl Scout Cookie Program, which generates more than $750 million in sales, teaches girls five essential business skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. The program reaches more than 2.3 million Girl Scouts in every zip code in the country.
