Girl Scouts of Gateway Councils is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of women and men who believe in the value of Girl Scouting
Board members use their professional expertise and personal perspectives to make decisions that provide leadership for the council and establish its policies and bylaws. These governance volunteers represent our membership and reflect its diversity, including geographic, racial/ethnic, gender, age and socio-economic. Board members are elected by the full Delegate Body.
The Board Development Committee is elected by the Delegate Body to prepare and present a single slate of nominees to be considered for election to the Board of Directors, Board Development Committee and, every three years, National Council Delegates and Alternates.
The Delegate Body consists of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts and adult volunteers selected in their service units or at large who serve as voting members at the Council’s Annual Meeting. The Delegate Body also elects the Board of Directors and Board Development Committee and approves any revisions to the Council By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation.
Constituent Engagement Meetings - All members of the council age 14 and over are invited to participate.
