Governance

Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital is a membership organization with volunteers, parents, and girls actively engaged in the strategic policy direction of the Council.

Some Board members bring a wealth of Girl Scout knowledge, while others bring expertise in areas such as strategic thinking and communications, knowledge of Girl Scouting, experience in governance (audit, investments and finance), and decision-making. 

If you missed our webinar on governance, you can dowload the presentation here.  Information on Board Committees and other Girl Scout Volunteer opportunities can be found here: committees and task forces.


2017 Forums

Forums are held at least once a year in geographically diverse areas within the Council's jurisdiction. They serve as policy influencing meetings where delegates:

  • Consider proposed plans, policies, and other matters referred to them by the Board
  • Present the views of the Service Units and the Council membership to the Board
  • Consider ways to improve the quality of Girl Scouting and identify the needs for Services

Delegate Forums are open to adult and teen Delegates. Click here to view the 2017 Forum Prep Service Unit Delegate Guide.
