at-large delegates

Currently each of the following Board of Directors approved at-large groups can elect two at-large delegates: 1.) Adventurers, 2.) Alumnae, 3.) Camp Administrators, and 4.) Council Trainers. The Board of Directors has the authority to designate other at-large groups or eliminate at-large groups as the need arises.

 

To be included in one of these at-large groups for the purpose of electing at-large delegates, girls 14 years of age and older and adults who are members of an at-large group must declare their membership for the purposes of electing delegates by completing an At-Large Group Participation Form (#1356), following the directions on the form, and submitting it to the Membership Voice Committee (MVC) (mvc@gsvsc.org). This form is also a nomination form to nominate yourself, or someone else, to serve as a delegate representing the group of which you are a declared member.

 

Why do I need to declare membership in an At-Large Group? Girls 14 years of age and older and adult volunteers can identify with more than one at-large group and identify with an operational unit. When voting for delegates, everyone can only vote in one delegate election. (Like our national elections — you live in one place, work in another — you can only vote where you live, not both where you live and work). If you are a member of one of these at-large groups and you are not going to vote for delegates in your operational unit, then you can declare to be a voting member of an at-large group. You must complete the At-Large Group Participation Form (#1356) to be eligible to vote for delegates for that group. You must declare as an at-large group member on an annual basis to be part of the at-large delegate election process.

 

Instructions for voting will be emailed or mailed to all declared at-large group members. You will be notified of delegate and alternate delegate election results.

 

If you want to declare yourself as a member of one of these at-large groups for the purposes of electing at-large delegates, you must complete the At-Large Group Participation Form (#1356) and send it to the Membership Voice Committee, mvc@gsvsc.org, by September 1.
