Thank you for taking the time to submit a recommendation on behalf of your Girl Scout in support of her application to serve on GSEMA’s Board of Directors.

Each year, up to four older girls (ages 14-17) are elected to the Board without privilege of vote, contributing their input and perspectives to council policy issues. This is a unique leadership opportunity for older girls, as it offers extensive experience working in partnership with our adult board members to make a difference in how the council is governed. And -- it's a great college application/resume builder!  

Applications and recommendations are due by November 18, 2021 at 5:00 PM Eastern. Once you begin this online recommendation, you cannot SAVE and return to it later. It must be completed in one sitting (estimated time is 5-10 minutes). Be sure to click "Submit Recommendation" on the final screen.
