Event Recap: Annual Meeting & Adult Awards


AM Del

Girl Scouts of West Central Florida recently held its 9th Annual Meeting and Adult Awards Ceremony at MOSI in Tampa. During the morning meeting, we celebrated the successes of the past year, elected and installed our new slate of Board leadership and recognized outstanding adult volunteers.

To open the meeting, Felecia Gilmore-Long, President and Jessica Muroff, CEO joined forces to present an overview of our 2014-2015 program year and discussed where we’re going next. This year, our focus was on reaching more girls, increasing our impact, making Girl Scouts a great place to volunteer, increasing philanthropy and enhancing and investing in our programs and properties. 

We easily achieved quorum with 191 delegates in attendance representing 43 of the 49 communities. We even had 10 communities with perfect attendance!  Way to go Land O’Lakes, Westwind, Whispering Pines, Gulf Sands, Toppercrest, Strawberry, Joining Rivers, Land of the Silver Moon, Northern Circle, and Brooksville Ridge!
