Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council (GSVSC) bylaws provides for the election of operational unit (Girl Scout Community/Service Unit) and at-large delegates. A huge “Thank You” goes out to all who take time to vote and to provide valuable input to our Board of Directors. Delegates attend our council’s annual meeting, vote on any amendments to our council bylaws and elect the board, the board development committee and, every three years, elect our national council delegates and alternate delegates to the Girl Scouts of the USA National Council Meeting.

 

Each operational unit is entitled to elect two delegates who are members 14 years of age or older. If the unit has girl membership in excess of 200 girls as of March 1, they can elect one additional delegate for each 100 girls over the initial 200 girls. Remaining nominees may be elected to serve as alternate delegates. The Board of Directors, through the Membership Voice Committee, notifies operational units in March regarding election procedures and the number of delegates they can elect. View each operational unit’s delegate count for the 2013-2014 year.

 

The following Board of Directors approved at-large groups may elect two delegates from their group: Adventurers, Alumnae, Camp Administrators and Council Trainers. Get more information on at-large delegates.
