Serving as a Girl Representative to the Council Board of Directors offers high school aged Girl Scouts opportunities to learn real-world leadership skills. This high stakes business atmosphere will help Girl Representatives understand the inner workings of Girl Scouts and the ways the Board influences and supports the Council. During their two year term, Girl Representatives will also get invaluable experience in long-term planning and financial accountability.

What is expected of Girl Representatives to the Council Board of Directors?

Girl Representatives are asked to attend each Board Meeting (5 total each year), GSCCS Annual Meeting, and Gold Award Ceremony. Girl Representatives will be expected to join a Board Committee, speak on their experiences in Girl Scouting, and participate in Board activities. They will be the voice of Girl Scouts in our Council to the Board of Directors!

  • Be at least 14 years of age by the time Annual Meeting occurs
  • Thoroughly complete and submit the application to BODapplications@girlscoutsccs.org before the deadline on September 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
