Have you ever considered representing GSSJC as a National Delegate? The National Council Session/56th Convention of Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. will be held July 16-23, 2023, in Orlando, Florida. GSSJC will send an elected delegation of older girls and adults as our representatives.
Here is what a Girl and Adult National Delegate from Columbus, Ohio had to say after serving as a Delegate.
“During the Ohio Convention, I had the opportunity to meet Girl Scouts from all over the country. As a group, we participated in voting in a parliamentary system and made real changes that will benefit future Girl Scouts to come. Not only did I get to be a part of Girl Scouts as a whole, I also made friends with the girls I traveled with. I’m very grateful for the travel experience, and the impact we all made together.” -Taylor Bruce, 2017 Girl National Delegate
“Being chosen to represent Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council as a National Delegate was an opportunity that I was honored to accept. To see fellow volunteers and Girl Scouts from near and far come under one roof to seek knowledge and make a difference all for the best interest of a great organization was a memory that I will forever cherish. The camaraderie between volunteers, the exhibition halls, the guest speakers, and watching our Girl Scouts be heard was absolutely amazing. I hope by sharing my experience with volunteers it will encourage others to do the same.” -Tisa Ahmed 2017 Adult National Delegate
