Please register for the Fall Delegate Council Meeting

Welcome to the new Membership Year! Now that school has started and pumpkin spice is appearing everywhere, it’s time for the first Delegate Council meeting of the year.

The Fall Delegate Council Meeting will happen VIRTUALLY on September 28, from 7-9 p.m. via Zoom.  Please register here.  All Service Unit Delegates and Alternates, Girl Delegates, Girl Advisors, Board members, and Board Development Committee members are encouraged to attend, and any interested Girl Scout members are also welcome!

At this meeting, you will hear from our Board Chair, our CEO, and our National Council Session Delegates. The primary focus of the Strategy Café discussions will be proposal topics for the 2023 NCS. (Because the next National Council Session is being held in July 2023 – instead of the traditional October timeframe – the timeline to submit proposals has also moved up and GSEP will need to finalize our proposals(s) (if any) by Spring 2022.)

We hope you will all join us for the first of three Delegate Council meetings of the year!  Again, please register via this link no later than September 24. 

Delegate Training Scheduled for All NEW Delegates! 

Any new Girl Delegates and Service Unit Delegates & Alternates are encouraged to take Delegate Training, which is happening virtually on Saturday, September 18, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. To get the most robust experience from your Delegate service, it helps to be educated about your new role.

One of GSUSA’s National Volunteer Partners in Governance will be hosting the training, so you’ll all be learning from a nationally recognized expert.  We will explain your governance role, our Bylaws and the part they play in GSEP’s organization, GSUSA’s Blue Book, and how we all work together to improve our Movement on a strategic level.  

If you haven’t already, please register no later than September 15 by emailing governance@gsep.org
