Our current bylaws include selection by the Council Membership, of two (2) non-voting Senior or Ambassador Girl Scouts who serve a one (1) year Board of Directors term. These girls participate in all Board meetings and training sessions but do not have voting rights. They are also invited to serve on a Board Committee of their choice and serve on the Teen Advisory Committee as technical officers.
These girls bring a valued perspective to Board discussion and decisions. The time commitment required is approximately 3 hours per month.
