It's time for our 2015 Annual Meeting, and we are excited about the business to be conducted and the time for volunteers to share their experience and successes with us. The materials are on the website and available for the meeting, which will held at the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Wiregrass on Alice Street (there are two in Dothan) on Saturday, March 28. We have a nature-themed girl program, which will run concurrent to the business meeting and discussion sessions.
Each year the goal of having an annual meeting is to provide transparency and accountability to the membership about what transpired the year before. We also review the financial results from the year prior and try to have some discussions that will interest volunteers. We also present the annual volunteer of the year award. This year, the aware is going to Barbara Mitchell, a long-time volunteer from the Dothan area, who has worked with girls in public housing communities.
We move the annual meeting around the council jurisdiction, so all have an opportunity to attend. We have held the annual meeting in Elba, but have not been to Dothan. We receive strong support from the Wiregrass United Way in this area, so we are delighted to hold the meeting in that part of the council. If you would like to attend the meeting and are a registered Girl Scout older than 14 years old, you can be a delegate. Simply register as a delegate. The registration materials for the meeting are available here, and can also be found on our website on our Forms page, under Publications.
We have lots of topics we would like to hear from you on, including the cookie program, fall product sale, program possibilities, camp programs and best practices or simply great idea you would like to share.
Once the meeting is over, we post the financial report and the annual report on our website for your review. We know many of you like to know what is going on, so this is a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts, ideas, and challenges.
Thank you for all you do to make the world a better place. We hope to see you on March 28.
