Represent GSNorCal at the National Council Session
Every three years, Girl Scouts gather at the National Council Session to celebrate and reinvigorate our Girl Scout Movement and chart our future. Girl Scouts of Northern California is looking for girl and adult volunteers to represent our council at the event occurring in Orlando, Florida, October 21-25, 2020.
The volunteer position is a three-year commitment which requires a Girl Scout membership for the duration. Girl Scout of Northern California will cover trip expenses for all National Delegates. In addition to conducting the business of the Movement, delegates will engage in conversations about the future and how to provide exciting educational opportunities for adults and girls.

Virtual Town Halls on National Proposals
National Council Delegates will vote on 6 proposals at the 2020 National Council Session. This summer, the national board held 21 virtual sessions with national delegates and now recommends the adoption of all 6 proposals. We are holding virtual Town Halls on 10/8 and 10/10 to provide opportunities for GSNorCal members to share their questions, concerns and opinions about the 6 proposals. It is each National Delegate's responsibility to participate in the National Council Session, "informed and not instructed." We will also provide a brief summary of each proposal during the Town Halls.
The 2020 National Council Session Workbook (pages 48-68), updated as of September 10, 2020, includes detailed information about each of the 6 proposals.
