Anne Kelley

I was both married and widowed at age 40, and so never had children. Volunteering locally, serving as National President, and now co-founding a new chapter have given me a unique opportunity to make an impact on children’s lives that I could not imagine without the Christ Child Society. Serving with so many other dedicated volunteers has been an amazing blessing in my life.

Anne Kelley serves the 2016-18 National Christ Child Board as its Immediate Past President, Communications Chair and Member of the Canonization Advisory Board.  Prior to her 2014-16 term as President, she served three terms on the NCCS Board and led NCCS’ 2011-16 strategic planning efforts. A member of the Pasadena Chapter for 26 years, Anne is also the founding President of the Christ Child Society of Monterey Bay.

Anne currently serves part-time as a Special Advisor to the Center for Responsible Enterprise and Trade (CREATe) and as a Program Director for The Conference Board’s Chief IP Officer’s Council. She retired in 2014 from the Microsoft Corporation where she served as Associate General Counsel and was responsible for patent licensing, anti-piracy, anti-corruption, and supply chain issues.  Anne also led the company’s international pro bono efforts and represented Microsoft various NGOs and governments on rule of law and intellectual property issues.

Anne currently serves on the Board of Governors of the University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, California. She is also a National Association of Pastoral Musicians certified cantor and cantors at St. Angela Merici Church in Pacific Grove, California.
