Three-Year Terms for Delegates: What Do YOU Think?


Currently, delegates to the National Council are elected just in time to review proposals, get feedback from their local council members, and then attend the national council session.

The proposal is that the National Council amend Article IV (The National Council), Section 5 (formula for delegates) of the Constitution of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America to facilitate delegates being elected by local councils two years preceding the National Council, and serving for a term of three years. This proposal supports the idea that if national council delegates are elected earlier they can be better prepared for their roles, and be involved in helping shape the agenda for the National Council Session.
