Delegates


Delegates
and alternate delegates serve as the primary communication link between area Girl Scout members, community networks and West Central Florida’s Board of Directors. They also gather opinions about governance matters; elect board members, Board Development Committee members and national council delegates; and approve changes to the council’s bylaws.

Area Association Meetings

Area Associations are geographical groupings of communities for the purpose of conducting our governance.  Area Association meetings are held twice a year (fall and early spring – usually October and February) and are the method by which delegates gather feedback from the council’s general membership on governance issues. These could include things like overall strategic plans, properties, policies affecting Girl Scouts and more.

The spring Area Assoiation Meetings will take place Feb. 18-21, 2020 - 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted.

Annual Meeting

Each spring – usually in April – Girl Scouts of West Central Florida holds its Annual Meeting. At the meeting, delegates and council members are invited to listen to a “state-of-the-council” address by our board president and CEO, as well as vote on incoming board members, participate in feedback forums, and more.

National Delegates

National Delegates serve for three years and attend the National Council Session, a meeting of Girl Scouts nationwide, which happens every three years. They attend the session, elect the National Board of Directors and Board Development Committee, approve changes to the Constitution or Bylaws of GSUSA,  and vote on various proposals as representatives of Girl Scouting. They also generally participate in discussion in the run-up to the National Council Session in order to better represent the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida.
