Raleigh, N.C. — In preparation of a new Girl Scout membership year beginning this fall, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines (GS-NCCP) is proud to announce new leadership in the departments of Membership and Human Resources. Meta Trombley of Fayetteville, NC will be assuming the role of Chief Membership Officer and Latisha Johnson of Raleigh, NC will be Vice President of Human Resources. Trombley and Johnson have extraordinarily represented our Mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, and they will continue to serve as role models for girls.
As the world’s largest organization for girls, Girl Scouts recognizes the importance of providing both Girl Scout members and employees with a strong support system through which they can evolve, let their voices be heard, and lead the way in making lasting change. Both leadership roles in the Membership and Human Resources departments are new, and the elevation of Trombley and Johnson shows continued commitment to strengthening these key areas of focus within the organization while recognizing their outstanding achievements thus far.
Trombley has a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in non-profit administration and has been providing innovative leadership for the membership department since 2003 having served in progressive leadership roles of membership executive, senior membership executive and vice president of membership. Under Trombley’s leadership, GS-NCCP has seen great successes in membership growth, increases in girl and adult retention, and the streamlining of reaching and supporting membership regions throughout the council’s 41-county footprint.
Johnson has a Master of Science in Human Resource Development, a Professional in Human Resources certification, and is also a Juris Doctor Candidate at North Carolina Central University. She joined GS-NCCP in the spring of 2019, and her accomplishments include streamlining the recruitment and onboarding process to create efficiency in the new hire process, reviewing and updating policies, enhancing compliance in HR paperwork and processes, and improving our performance management system.
“As we begin to wrap up our 2020 membership year, I see that our most treasured resources are our employees and our membership and how fortunate we are as an organization to have such capable, knowledgeable, and highly experienced leadership in both of these areas,” said Lisa Jones, Chief Executive Officer of GS-NCCP. “In their new roles, Meta and Latisha will serve as incredible leaders and thought partners as we continue to provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls in 41 counties.”
In August, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) appointed Judith Batty CEO, making history as the organization’s first black woman to serve in the role. Girl Scouts is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and like Batty on the national front, Trombley and Johnson are trailblazers for GS-NCCP in these pivotal areas. Recently, the council has increased efforts in diversity training for employees as well as the development of diversity programming for girls.
