Delegates

GSUSA_3-col_2017_Volunteer-appreciation_1060x459

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.

Our bylaws contain procedures on how our Council should operate and be governed. Our goal is to ensure simple, understandable, transparent language and consistency throughout the bylaws. We are currently receiving feedback and questions on the proposed bylaws for our town hall in March.  To prepare, please take some time to read the proposed bylaws and ask your questions in advance by completing the Feedback Form using the links below.

Area Association Meetings

Area Association meetings are held twice each year and are your opportunity to interact with Girl Scouts of West Central Florida Board of Directors, as well as to influence council policies, and find out what is happening around the council.

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.

Delegate Training
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.
