Thank you to all who participated in our first virtual Annual Meeting on May 2! We had a record number of 265 people attend – including Delegate Council members, Girl Scouts, family members, and friends from more than five states participating virtually!
The business portion of the Annual Meeting was conducted efficiently and effectively via our online voting system. Votes were passed to Approve the Minutes Committee, the Appointment of Tellers, the Slate of the Board of Directors, Girl Advisors, Board Development Committee, National Council Session Delegates, and Girl Delegates. We also, after 13 years, voted to replace our Bylaws, recently minted by an exceptional group of leaders, chaired by Board Secretary Deb Walters, who worked on the revisions/editing/rewriting process for the past year.

Deb Walters was also presented with the 2019 Governance Award for her service and commitment to great governance for GSEP. Congratulations to Deb!
Additionally, we had a Governance Report, Treasurer’s Report, and Management Report. And, we ended the meeting with our exceptional girls. We celebrated our Top Cookie Sellers and Older Girl Scholarship recipients. For those who were unable to attend, please check out the Annual Meeting Presentation on GSEP’s YouTube channel. Make sure you watch it to the end, where you will get a moving and delightful treat hearing about a very special Girl Scout Silver Award project.
