Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore Delegate Process

There are two different types of Girl Scout delegates: council delegates and national delegates.

Council Delegates have the right to vote at the council’s annual meeting on items such as electing officers, considering amendments to council bylaws, and key issues affecting the council and Girl Scouts of the USA, and other business appropriate for the meeting.

National Delegates attend the GSUSA national session which is held every three years to vote on proposals and constitutional changes, be the voice of the council for membership, help set the strategic direction, and help establish requirements for credentials.

2021-2022 Operational Unit Delegate Process

There are many ways to volunteer with Girl Scouts in addition to being a troop leader. One great opportunity that requires a minimal time commitment is the role of Operational Unit Delegate.

Serving as an Operational Unit Delegate is a great way to have your views shared with the council's Board of Directors and it is a great addition to college applications for teen Girl Scouts.

Any registered member, 14 years and older, may become an operational unit delegate. Mother/Daughter delegates are welcome!

Operational Unit Delegates are the liaisons between the board of directors, council staff and the constituents they represent.

 A delegate's responsibilities include:

  • Attends the Annual Delegate Meeting * (Wednesday, May 11, 2022) and Delegate Forums:
  • Fall Delegate Forum: November 10, 2021, 6:00pm-8:00pm, TBD
  • Spring Delegate Forum:  March 30, 2022, 6:00pm-8:00pm, TBD
  • Offers input to the Board of Directors through discussions at the Delegate Forums and the Annual Delegate Meeting.
  • Votes on issues affecting the entire Council and reports results back to the Operational Unit membership.
  • Maintains communication with Operational Unit membership.
