Christine Malafi, a partner at Campolo, Middleton & McCormick, LLP, Suffolk County’s premier law firm, has been sworn in as a member of the Board of Directors of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County (“GSSC”). The preeminent leadership development organization for girls, GSSC serves more than 40,000 girls between the ages of 5 and 17. As a board member, Malafi will work to further the organization’s mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character.
In 2015, Malafi was involved in the implementation of GSSC’s new “Justice Patch” program, which was designed to help girls develop a sense of fairness and an understanding of the role of lawyers and judges in the community. The Justice Patch program imparts knowledge to the county’s young citizens as to why laws exist and how they can be changed when they do not work.
Malafi, chair of the Corporate department at Campolo Middleton, focuses on mergers and acquisitions as well as insurance, municipal, and labor and employment matters. She is a longtime volunteer for organizations dedicated to the personal and professional development of women and girls. She is no stranger to GSSC, having been a Girl Scout herself in her youth.
“We are delighted to have Ms. Malafi join the Board of Directors,” said Yvonne Grant, President and CEO for Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “I am confident that her enthusiasm and dedication to serving girls will align extremely well with the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character.”
