Update regarding G.I.R.L. 2020 and the 55th National Council Session
Taking in every consideration and with the health and safety of all members of the Girl Scout Movement at the forefront, the GSUSA National Board held a special meeting on Tuesday, April 21, and voted to hold a one-time virtual session for our 55th National Council Session in October 2020. The board also voted to cancel G.I.R.L. 2020, including the Global Roundtable.
As they monitored public health experts’ recommendations and forecasts, it became clear that Girl Scouts could not hold convention in person in October 2020. With such a large-scale, in-person event, there was great concern over being able to guarantee the health and safety of participants. By making the decision now, they can maximize planning time to deliver an engaging virtual version of our 55th NCS. There was also the understanding that our councils, delegates, and those planning to attend NCS and G.I.R.L. 2020 also need time to work through these changes.
GSUSA will refund all registrations in full (100%) for NCS, G.I.R.L. 2020, and other convention–related events and activities that registrants made directly through GSUSA via your original payment method. You do not need to do anything. Please give us a few weeks to process all refunds.
