National Council Delegates

The National Council is the membership body of Girl Scouts of the USA charged with providing input and broad direction to the future of the Girl Scout Movement.

As required by the Girl Scouts of the USA Constitution in the Blue Book of Basic Documents (in both English and Spanish), the body convenes every three years and is the major link between Girl Scout Councils and the national organiziation.

The National Council Session/54th Convention of Girl Scouts of the USA will be held October 21-25, 2020 in Orlando, Florida.  National Council Sessions (conventions) are held every three years for the purpose of determining the general lines of policy of the Girl Scout Movement and the Girl Scout Program.  

In addition to providing feedback on new strategies for success, growth, and expansion, the purpose of the meeting is to:

1. Hear the report of the National Board of Directors

2. Act on proposals and information presented to the delegation

3. Elect the Board of Directors and Board Development Committee for the next three year term
