2011 Girl Scout National Council Session & Convention
The 2011 Girl Scout National Council Session and 52nd Convention will be held in Houston, Texas, November 10-13. The theme is Renewing the Promise: Girl Scouts in a New Century. Here is a link to GSUSA's Convention page: http://www.girlscouts.org/convention/
National Council Delegates: GSUSA allocated 25 National Council Delegate positions to Girl Scouts of Northern California. The Board Development Committee reviewed all applications, and established a slate of National Council Delegates and alternates that voting members will vote on at our council's April 30, 2011, Annual Meeting.
We will be posting information for National Council Delegates about webinars and training to prepare Delegates for their roles.
