“Marilyn Midyette defines what it means to be a successful businesswoman,” said BBA President Catherine Cattles in a statement. “As Girl Scout cookie season is upon us, it is important to remember that cookie sales are not only a fund raiser, but also a tremendous opportunity for girls to develop and exert leadership roles. We are honored to host such a positive role model, and advocate for girls and young women throughout Metro Atlanta, as the featured speaker at the BBA weekly breakfast.”
As chief executive officer, Midyette has such responsibilities as oversight of the council’s strategic planning process, finance and operations management, marketing and communications, fund development, membership growth, volunteer support and development, program delivery and compliance.
