We are pleased to welcome our keynote luncheon speaker, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is Eastern Washington's chief advocate in Congress and one of the rising stars in American Politics. She is currently serving as the Chair of the House Republican Conference, making her the fourth highest ranking Republican and the highest ranking female Republican in the House of Representatives. As someone who grew up on a family farm, worked at a small business, and later became a wife and mom, Cathy McMorris Rodgers has lived the American Dream, and she sees her chief goal in Congress as rebuilding that Dream for our children and grandchildren. 

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Troop Capitol Hill
Girl Scouts’ Honorary Troop Capitol Hill, a bipartisan delegation of women members of Congress, was established by Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to educate Congress about issues affecting girls and young women. Co-chaired by Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Susan Collins (R-ME), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representatives Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Susan Brooks (R-IN), Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). Troop Capitol Hill comprises members who explore and promote policy solutions that improve girls’ lives.

This honorary troop has assisted Girl Scouts considerably, introducing more Members of Congress to the benefits of Girl Scouting, developing policy ideas, briefing Congress on key issues facing girls and young women, and identifying funding opportunities to support these issues.

About Community Leadership Events

Annual Community Leadership events feature a leader who is a role model for all Girl Scouts. Community Leadership events are held annually in cities throughout our council region. Funds raised at each Community Leadership event will support troops in that local community. This fundraising event celebrates the impact of Girl Scouting on girls and young women in your community. No prepayment is required. However, your registration and attendance is a commitment to make a suggested minimum $100 donation to support the Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho.  

The purpose of the Community Leadership Luncheon event is to:

  • Raise awareness of the Girl Scout Program and its educational, recreational and leadership opportunities for girls
  • Raise funds to:
    1. Enhance current and incorporate new, innovative program for Girl Scouts in the area
    2. Continue our outreach for scholarships for girls to participate in activities which would otherwise not be available
    3. Continue to develop programs such as civic education and experience, career pathways and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to help girls maximize their capabilities and prepare for their future.
