Interested in being a Girl Delegate or Girl Advisor to the Board next year? Apply now!
Of course, you can also have an impact on policy and strategic decisions closer to home! Girls who will be at least 14 years old by May 2, 2020, are encouraged to apply to be either a Girl Delegate or a Girl Advisor to the Board of Directors.
As members of the Delegate Council, 30 Girl Delegates represent the more than 35,000 girls in our 9-county footprint. They bring the girl perspective to governance issues at two Delegate Meetings a year and get to vote on Board members, Board Development Committee members, and Bylaws amendments at the Annual Meeting in May.
Every year, 3 Girl Advisors are elected to share their voices and opinions at the five Board meetings throughout the year. This is a phenomenal experience to interact and influence adults who are shaping the future direction of GSEP.
Apply via this online application; the due date is January 10, 2020. Don’t wait too long! You will also need at least one reference (to apply for the Girl Delegate position) or two references (to be considered for the Girl Advisor position). References (from teachers, coaches, troop leaders, employers, etc.) are also due January 10, 2020.
Know someone who would make a great Board member? (or member of the Board Development Committee?)
The Board Development Committee (BDC) works year-round to identify, cultivate and recruit candidates for the Board of Directors as well as the BDC itself. As a piece of building a constructive pipeline of potential governance leaders, there is an opportunity for members of GSEP to nominate themselves or other people who they feel would be worthwhile candidates for the BDC to consider. Download this nomination form, fill it out, save it, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 10, 2020.
