National Delegates

National Council Delegates serve as Girl Scouts San Diego’s voting members at the National Council Session. They engage and gather feedback from Girl Scout members in our council, learn about proposals, take action to be the voice of Girl Scouts Central California South during the National Council Session. They then bring back information to share locally.
