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.

Delegates 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 Regional Delegate. 

Serving as a Regional 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 a regional delegate. Mother/Daughter delegates are welcome!

Regional Delegates are responsible for presenting the needs and concerns of the membership to the council Board of Directors. A delegate's responsibility is to:

  • Sign the position agreement
  • Take Regional Delegate training
  • Attend the Annual Delegate Meeting (Wednesday, May 12, 2021) and Delegate Forums (Fall 2020 and Spring 2021) 
  • Offer input to the Board of Directors through discussions at the Delegate Forums and the Annual Delegate Meeting
  • Vote on issues affecting the entire Council and report results back to the Regional membership
  • Maintain communication with Regional membership
