Mary Ellen Hettinger, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

Mary Ellen Hettinger has been  a member of the Ambassador  Committee since 2009.  Hettinger is Director of Communications and Marketing for Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, which serves more than 15,000 girls in New Hampshire and Vermont, headquartered in Bedford. She is also chair of the NH Commission on the Status of Women.“After attending Chamber events as a member, I realized I could better promote Girl Scouting and get to know more members as a volunteer ambassador,” says Hettinger. “Since fewer girls go door-to-door, people aren’t aware that we’re still going strong at 98 years old.” Although she volunteered to boost Girl Scouting’s visibility, Hettinger says, “I enjoy meeting people and learning about what they do, and that makes volunteering and helping people make connections at Chamber events so much fun.”
