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, communications, experience in governance (audit, investments and finance) and decision-making. Want to be a member of the Girl Scouts Nation's Capital Board? Fill out the approprate application:

Girl Application

The deadline for girl applications will continue to be December 15th.  Girl interviews  for the Board of Directors take place at our Girl Scout office on a Sunday in January every year based on the applications received.

Adult Application

As we continue to work to streamline our governance process, the application deadline for adult positions for the Board of Directors and/or the Nominating Committee is October 15th of each year.  This deadline gives the Nominating Committee ample time to review applications and meet with candidates.  The application process is closed after that and opens up again following the Annual Meeting in April every year.
