53rd National Council Session, 2014
Want to be a Council Delegate?
National conventions are held every three years for the purpose of determining the general lines of policy of the Girl Scout movement and the Girl Scout program. Each council is eligible to send delegates to the convention, and the combined delegate body is referred to as the National Council. The number of delegates each council will send is based on membership as of September 30, 2013. Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay will be eligible to send approximately 6 voting delegates, and 3 alternates as prescribed by the formula established by the Girl Scouts of USA.
If you are interested in serving as a delegate, click here to obtain an application and mail it to Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay, Attention: Board Development Committee, 501 S. College Ave., Newark, DE. All paperwork is due to council by November 30, 2013.
The Committee will review applications and select a slate of national council delegates and alternate delegates. National Council delegates will be elected at the GSCB Annual Meeting on April 30, 2014.
Is this just for adults? No!
Girls over the age of 14 are also eligible to serve as national delegates, and our council has historically made a point of including girls
in our delegation. The Board Development Committee looks forward to receiving applications from both girls and adults.
You don’t need to be a delegate to attend, if you are interested in being an “Official Visitor”, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your interest and we will share costs and travel information with you.
