February – Women of Distinction Speaker Series
February 8, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$32.00 – $50.00
We are so pleased to have Bonnie Barczykowski from the Eastern Missouri Council Girl Scouts as our speaker.
Bonnie Barczykowski’s passion for Girl Scouting is paying off big-time. Under her leadership, the Eastern Missouri council has grown membership 10-percent over the past two years while national figures have decreased. She oversees 100 full-time staffers and 15,000 adult volunteers across 28 counties.
“Some of our young women see their first chance to have mentors in their lives through Girl Scouts. Through STEM, money management and health programs, we’re building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place,” she says.
Barczykowski knows a thing or two about confidence herself. Before joining Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri, she left a corporate position to own and operate five Curves fitness franchises. Her first location – in Florissant – had a record 1,700 members, making it the largest Curves fitness center in the world.
She is also a motivational speaker and author of the healthy lifestyle book, “Make the Harder Choice.” Her program will focus on “Moments in time” – what they are and how we can create them, for an organization, for others and for ourselves.
Also, they are currently have a Personal Care Item Drive. Please see below for details if you are able to donate!
