Delegates, you are important! Representing Girl Scouts Louisiana East (GSLE) is an honor and a privilege. You have been selected by your peers to represent your service units and constituency. When you accepted the nomination, you proudly stated your commitment to place the needs and desires of the council, constituency, and service unit members above your own personal interests.
It is vital that your service unit be represented at the Annual Meeting as they ensure your Girl Scouts’ voices are heard – both volunteers' and girls'. Delegates are your Service Unit’s direct link to the Council Board of Directors and they have the opportunity to influence the strategic direction of the Council through the election of Board Directors and Officers, the Board Development Committee, and National Delegates. In addition, the members consider, discuss, and vote on proposals or changes to its bylaws.
As a Delegate, your responsibilities include participating in trainings, attending Service Unit meetings, and being the voice for your Service Unit at Council’s Annual Meeting as required by our bylaws. In addition to approving the slate of candidates at the Annual Meeting, you will also review our Council's progress toward our goals with updates from our board chair and our CEO. Once you are appointed as a Delegate, online training through gsLearn will be provided by council. This training must be completed in order to serve as a Delegate.
Being a Delegate does not only benefit GSLE, but you as well. This leadership position is a wonderful way to build your resume and develop skills that will benefit you in other areas of your life.
