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, contributing their input and perspectives to council policy issues. Girl Board Members may participate in votes on all matters coming before the Board with the exception of those related to financial commitments and budgets. 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!
Nominees will be listed on the slate of candidates to be elected at GSEMA’s annual meeting in May. Once elected, Girls are expected to attend board meetings that are typically held in June, September, November, January and March and/or as needed (subject to change). The Girl board term begins with the May annual meeting and concludes with the following year's May annual meeting.
All girl applications and adult recommendations are due by December 1, 2020 at 4:00 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).
Thank you for supporting the leadership development journey of this Girl Scout with your recommendation.
