Governance

The Girl Scouts of Nassau County Council is governed through policies set by its elected Board of Directors, and operations are carried out by 60+ staff members and nearly 6,000 volunteers! The Board of Directors rotates on a bi-annual basis so that some members are elected each year by the voting members at the council’s Annual Meeting.

The voting members which consist of the Board of Directors, the Council Nominating Committee, the Association Delegates and Past Presidents of the Board of Directors, vote at the Annual Meeting to elect the Board of Directors, the Council Nominating Committee, National Council Delegates and Alternates.  In addition the voting members vote on any proposed revisions to the Council By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation.

The Board of Directors maintains the integrity and the purpose of Girl Scouting. The Board’s responsibilities include policymaking, fund development, and strategic planning. Learn more about GSNC's Board of Directors.

The Council Nominating Committee works to prepare and present a single slate of nominees, to be considered for election at the Annual Meeting, to the Board of Directors, Council Nominating Committee and, every three years, National Council Delegates and Alternates.

The Association Delegates consists of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts and adult volunteers selected in their Associations to give guidance to the Board of Directors with input from the members of their Associations.

The Association Nominating Committee create a single slate of nominees to be considered for election at the Association Annual Meeting but do not have voting rights at the GSNC Council Annual Meeting.

The National Council Delegates do not have voting rights at the GSNC Council Annual Meeting but represent our Council and have voting rights at the GSUSA National Council Session/Convention scheduled during their three year term.
