Governance structures are part of every Girl Scout Council and are defined in the Council bylaws.
Voting Members of the Corporation (Council) are convened at the council's Annual Meeting and special meetings of the corporation to elect the board of directors and board development committee, and National Council delegates/alternates as appropriate, in addition to approving council bylaws. Voting members of the corporation include the board of directors, the board development committee, and the delegate body.
The Delegate Body consists of members age 14 and above and adult volunteers elected in their Service Units.
The 55th National Council Session - 2020
At the 55th National Council Session in October 2020, six proposals were considered and voted on. GSMISTS hosted virtual feedback sessions with all GSMISTS delegates so that they could share their comments and opinions on the National Council (NC) proposals with our NC delegates. To learn more, please check out the 2020 GSUSA NCS Recap.
As a volunteer organization, Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore has a volunteer Board of Directors composed of community leaders and professionals. The combined expertise of these community members provides leadership to the council by establishing the policies and bylaws that guide us.
These governance volunteers have the responsibility of strategic planning, fund development, financial oversight, appointment of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), and are Girl Scout ambassadors to our council. They are chosen by the Board Development Committee and elected by the voting members of the council each year at our Annual Meeting.
