Want to be a delegate to the National Convention?

Delegates serve a three-year term and must be registered members of GSUSA and 14 years old or older. The National Council of GSUSA convenes in session every three years and consists of delegates elected by Girl Scout councils, delegates representing lone troops outside the United States (USA Girl Scouts Overseas), members of the National Board of Directors and the National Nominating Committee, past presidents of GSUSA and other persons who may be elected by the National Council.

The National Council of Delegates is responsible for giving broad policy direction to the future of the Girl Scout movement in the USA. Members act on proposals directed toward the fostering and improvement of Girl Scouting and receive a report from the National Board of Directors on its stewardship of the movement in the past three years. Interested in this important work?
