About the Annual Meeting

Our bylaws require an Annual Meeting of the corporate membership, (comprised of board members, nominating committee members, and council delegates) and is conducted in April every year.

Delegates represent service units at our Annual Meeting and Forums.  Service units select delegates and alternate delegates—members 14 years of age and older—who serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors. Each service unit is allotted one delegate for every 200 girl members, based on the previous year. In preparation for the Annual Meeting, the Council holds regional Forums traditionally (see schedule below) for delegates to discuss proposals and provide feedback to the Board of Directors.

What happens at the Annual Meeting

Elect officers, directors at large, members of the Board Development Committee; and every three years, the delegates and alternates to the National Convention.


Consider any proposed amendments to the bylaws.


Provide input on key issues affecting the Council and the Movement.


Consider any other business appropriate to come before the corporation in accordance with the process established by the board of directors.

*2018  Forums have been conducted. View 2017 presentation here.
