Member engagement is a key part of Girl Scouts of Northern California's strategy as we strive to honor the voice of our membership. Our governance system, which is comprised of elected or appointed delegates who serve as voting members of the council, is the main way for members to give input to our Board of Directors. All delegates should attend the in-person Annual Meeting on May 21, 2023 to cast their votes and make their voices heard.
What is a National Delegate?
A National Delegate is an elected representative of Girl Scouts of Northern California who attends the National Council Session of Girl Scouts of the USA (held every 3 years), as well as GSNorCal's Annual Meeting each year of their term. This position is responsible for determining the direction Girl Scouting will take throughout the country and is a three-year term.
How are National Delegates selected?
The current application period has passed. Adult and youth members ages 14+ are eligible to apply for this position in fall 2024 to represent GSNorCal at the 2026 NCS. Meet our 2022-2025 National Delegates and Alternates.
National Council Session
Every three years, Girl Scouts gather at the National Council Session to celebrate and reinvigorate our Girl Scout Movement and chart our future. The National Council Session and Convention (Phenom) will occur July 18-22, 2023 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. National Delegates will be registered by GSNorCal, but anyone can register to attend Convention. Learn more and register here.
