We are the 2020-2022 Delegates and want to share our experiences and build a strong delegation for the 2023 National Council Session. Every three years Girl Scouts of the USA holds the National Council Session and gathers delegates from all councils to review the past three years, elect the National Board and vote on important changes for the Girl Scout Movement.
Volunteers from around Colorado send in an application and are chosen to represent Colorado Council. Colorado chooses both girl and adult delegates who are passionate about Girl Scouts and want to make a difference. Delegates have the opportunity to present changes to our governance, share their opinion with 1500 delegates from around the country and vote on important topics. We recommend that anyone interested in the politics and governance of Girl Scouts apply to be a delegate. We especially want to encourage high school Girl Scouts to apply. Representing Colorado Council at the National Council Session will look great on a resume, enhance your scholarship applications and give you an experience worthy of becoming your college essay.
Over the next few months, the 2020-2022 Delegation will be posting specific details on what happens at the National Council Session. On April 21, we will be having round table discussions with anyone interested in learning more. We are always happy to directly respond to your questions as well, so contact Laura Aguon at Laura.Aguon@gscolorado.org and she will pass your questions our way. We are looking for volunteers who are looking to expand their knowledge of the National Girl Scout Movement and make a difference in the path we are on. Join us at a roundtable to learn more.
