Valerie Quiett, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines Board Chair

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 on the Board of Directors. Valerie Quiett of Durham, NC will be assuming the role of Board Chair. Quiett has extraordinarily represented our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, and will continue to serve as a role model for girls in her new position.

As the world’s largest organization for girls, Girl Scouts recognizes the importance of providing both Girl Scout members and employees with strong leadership through which they can evolve, let their voices be heard, and lead the way in making lasting change. A leadership role on the Board of Directors embodies these values and sets the council up for continued success. Valerie has shown that her skills and experience will have a lasting positive impact on our council and Girl Scout community.

Quiett is an attorney and banker and has been with M&F Bank in Durham since 2000. She currently serves as Senior Vice President/Chief Legal Officer/Corporate Secretary for M&F Bancorp, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary, M&F Bank. Valerie is responsible for the Bank’s regulatory compliance program and its legal matters. She has over thirty years of combined community bank operations, compliance, legal and corporate experience. Valerie was appointed to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Community Bank Advisory Council (“CBAC”) in 2019.  She served as Vice Chair of the CBAC in 2019 and served as the Chair of the CBAC in 2021. She currently serves on the Independent Community Bankers of America – Consumer Financial Services Sub-Committee.

Valerie received a B.S. in Business Economics from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina. She received her Juris Doctorate from North Carolina Central University School of Law in Durham, North Carolina. Valerie was a Brownie as a young girl and is mother to three daughters, the youngest, Veronica, is currently a Senior in Girl Scouts. Valerie regularly volunteers in the community and is a member of Jack and Jill of America Inc. – Durham Chapter, an organization whose programs are designed to nurture and develop future leaders.

“As incoming board chair, I want to thank Bonnie Hancock for her leadership.  Through her dedicated service, Bonnie has been instrumental in guiding our organization. We appreciate Bonnie’s leadership particularly as we successfully maneuvered through 2 years of unchartered pandemic territory” says Quiett.

“I am extremely honored to lead and serve as GS-NCCP’s newly elected board chair. Congratulations to the newly elected officers, directors, Girl Directors, Board Development Committee Chair and Committee Members, National Council Delegates and National Council Delegate Alternates.  I look forward to continuing the work of our Council. I am excited to work with each of you as we continue to keep the girls at the center of all that we do, continue to work together to impact our communities; and continue to work diligently to ensure that all girls have the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts.  We know that this opportunity is transformative and gives girls the opportunity to develop leadership skills that last for a lifetime.  Together, we will continue to develop girls of COURAGE, CONFIDENCE and CHARACTER!”
