Service Unit Delegates, Delegates-at-Large, and National Delegates

Member engagement is a key part of Girl Scouts of Northern California's strategy as we strive to honor the voice of our membership. Our governance system, with elected or appointed delegates serving as voting members of the council, is the main way for members to give input to our Board of Directors. Learn more about these delegate positions and how you can get involved today!

Service Unit Delegates and Delegates-at-Large

Service Unit Delegates and Delegates-at-Large serve as the primary communication link between our girl and adult members and Northern California's Board of Directors. Service Unit Delegates and Delegates-at-Large provide input to the Board on our Council's strategy and elect the Council Board of Directors.

The annual nomination period for Service Unit Delegates is October-November of each year. 

The Delegates-at-Large position was developed to provide opportunities for council level groups, other than Service Units, to be represented by voting members of the council. To learn more, check out the Delegate-at-Large nomination information
