Board of Directors
The Board consists of 17-21 volunteers who serve 3 year terms (officers are 2 year terms) and are elected at the annual meeting by the Representative Assembly. The Board of Directors develops, manages, and maintains Girl Scouting within the terms of the Girl Scout charter.
Nominations and Election Process
The election of the Council’s Board of Directors and National Council Delegates is one of the most important tasks a Representative has at the annual meeting. The Board Development Committee, an advisory committee of the Board of Directors, works all year long to carefully select the right candidate with the best qualifications to fill a specific position on the Board of Directors. Only an individual who meets the specific needs and qualifications for a position will be presented as a candidate for that position. Once the best candidates are identified, a single slate (one candidate for each vacant position) of nominees is submitted to the Representatives for consideration at the annual meeting. Nominations will not be accepted from the floor during an annual meeting. Representatives may submit names of potential candidates throughout the year in accordance with nomination policies and procedures adopted by the Board Development Committee.
