Dear Girl Scout Adults,
Girl Scouts of the USA will convene 53rd National Council Session October 16 - 19, 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Girl Scouts from all over the nation and world will converge on Salt Lake for this existing and important meeting for the Girl Scout Movement.
Purpose of the National Meeting is to engage in conversations on important topics facing Girl Scouts and all girls, participate in an array of educational opportunities through Girl Scouts University, and network, mingle and renew friendships, while we celebrate the work of the movement.
In addition, elected delegates to the convention will participate in the governance work of the session by electing a National Board of Directors and National Board Development Committee, provide direct input to the National Board on major topics to help drive the direction of the Girl Scout Movement, vote on proposals and amendments to the Constitution placed on the agenda, and receive the National Board report on its stewardship of the movement.
Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas will be represented at this gathering by six official delegates and two alternates. These participants will be charged with representing the council in any voting or consensus gathering discussions, as well as, bringing back to the council information and resources. These delegates were elected at the 2013 Annual Meeting.
