Every three years our Girl Scout charter is reconsidered by GSUSA. This takes a great deal of time, as they are looking at whether we comply with a book filled with policies governing Girl Scout councils. One of many policies addresses whether volunteers have their materials reviewed every three years. Another piece is what training and certifications do each leader hold. In an effort to encourage leaders to complete these trainings and certifications, volunteer services has developed a Leader License. This will be a laminated license nametag that we will provide leaders that they can wear at events. In an effort to recognize those volunteers who complete this process, they will receive monthly incentives to show our appreciation. We are like all companies, sign up and do the work, and you will receive discounts.
We have been working hard to get Cheryl Miller, our volunteer liaison, out and about around the council as you begin this new year. She's been working with volunteers, training and addressing other start up issues. If you have questions about the Leader License or other things relating to Girl Scouts, we encourage you to contact Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-272-9164 x2302 or 334-312-0433.
